Welcome to Camp!

We are so excited for Summer 2024!

June 24 to August 23

Please note some recent changes:

  • In order to attend Week 9, campers must attend at least 3 weeks during weeks 1-8. This applies to KinderCamp, Camp Simchah and Camp Simchah Specialty (second Travel Camp week).
  • 5-day week is required for all camps and for Extended Care.


When the sun is shining and school is out, Summer at the J  Camp is the place to be!

From KinderCampers (2 years, 9 months to entering Kindergarten) to LITs (entering 8th or 9th grade) our award-winning summer camps offer something for everyone! KinderCamp is THE most fun place to be for local little ones offering daily art, stories, music and swimming, while Camp Simchah (entering grades 1-7) introduces kids to the wonder of traditional summer camp through a day filled with traditional camp activities, fun in the pool, Spirit Days, and more all while fostering a love of camp, community and friendship. For a more activity-specific experience, our engaging Simchah Specialty camp offers Tennis, Art, Sports and a Travel Camp!

Our Preschool Summer Program is designed for children who are 3 years old but are not quite ready for our outdoor summer camp.

Join us this summer for a fun, enriching adventure where together we can grow, learn, explore and make new friends.
