Here at the JCCNS, we believe that everyone is welcome and that includes our Summer at the J Camps. Our Special Needs Inclusion Program, led by Inclusion Director, Melissa Caplan, allows children of various ages, skills and abilities to have a positive camp experience. Our specially-trained staff work with children who have special needs to integrate them into KinderCamp, Camp Simchah, Simchah Specialty, and Summer at the J LIT programs. We are also proud to offer employment opportunities for teens and young adults with special needs to work at our camps.

To register for our Inclusion Program, please download the Inclusion Intake Form below, and contact Inclusion Director, Melissa Caplan, for the registration forms and to schedule the required meeting.  For additional information on registering and situations of limited availability, please see the Parent Handbook or contact Melissa Caplan at
