When school’s on break, kids choose their own adventures and make new friends at the JCC. Our School Vacation Camps are open to members and non-members in grades K-6. Older kids in grades 7-9 can participate as counselors-in-training (CITs) at a reduced cost.

We’ve got all the school breaks covered!

Camps run during weeklong December, February, April and Passover vacations. Kids get to choose three electives daily, including sports, swimming, arts and crafts, dance, cooking, board games and more. There’s also an exciting camp-wide activity every day. Enrollment is always flexible to fit your family’s plans. Kids can join us for a single day, several days or the entire week.
