  • Cool Down Camp begins every day with a spirited Boker Tov!

  • Preschool Explorers spend their days in a nurturing structured indoor/outdoor camp environment.  Home base for each group is inside our newly renovated, state-of-the-art preschool wing so our littlest campers are protected from the summer heat.

  • Our K - 6th grade campers are stationed on the JCC campsite adjacent to our main building.  Home base for each group is a designated picnic table under the giant tent.  These campers will also come indoors for specific activities.
  • All campers participate in an instructional swim program with experienced Water Safety Instructors.

  • K - 6th grade campers can choose between Sports or Arts specialty camp!
  • Art is filled with fun projects that K - 6th grade campers will have a great time creating!
