Camp Simchah - JCCNS, Jewish Community Center of the North Shore
Camp Simchah - M-F 9-4 for grades 1-7

Camp Simchah campers will have a blast with the classic JCCNS camp-model that we all know and love! Our shared campus with Epstein Hillel School allows for experiences both inside and out! Campers will enjoy daily rotations of Instructional Swim in our beautiful outdoor pool, Arts & Crafts, Sports & Games, Science & Nature, and some exciting, new, counselor-led group games, including use of our Gaga Pit! 

Each week finishes off with our Shabbat Showcase — songs, performances, presentations & displays — a time for campers to showcase what they have accomplished that week! Plus, Spirit Days will help fill our activity-filled weeks with even more fun! Campers entering 3rd-7th grades may choose to register for some weeks of Camp Simchah and other weeks of Simchah Specialty Camps. Campers can choose the programs they’re most interested in to craft the ultimate summer!

What is Simchah?


The Hebrew word Simchah means Happiness and Joy. At Camp Simchah, we believe in the power of Camp and the power of Happiness and Joy — so we’ve selected these principles that guide everything we do at camp
