Camp J: Where Camp Friends are Forever Friends!
Imagine a transformative summer full of splashing in the pool,
playing gaga, and creating amazing crafts. Camp J at the Jewish
Community Center invites your camper to join us for our Camp June
7 – August 6.
Weekly traditional camp is offered for children entering
Kindergarten through 9th grade with arts & crafts, sports, free swim, and more! Each week, our camp will be centered around inspiring themes that make each week feel like a new adventure.
Camp J provides:
• Healthy, developmentally appropriate activities and meaningful learning experiences
• Discovery through experiential education
• Caring, competent role models
• High staff to camper ratios
• Impactful service to the community and the environment
• Opportunities for leadership and personal growth
Specialty camps are also offered which include: Snapology Lego Camps, Soccer Shots, Chess, Mesa Kids Cooking Camp, CenterStage Theater Camp, and many more! All specialty camps enjoy swimming during the week.
Yachad is our inclusion program that allows campers with varying needs the opportunity to enjoy the Camp J experience and empowers all children to fully integrate into our program. Campers who need extra assistance will work with advocates to personalize the camp experience to meet their individual needs.
Our dedicated and responsible camp counselors are carefully vetted and selected for their skills, experience, and interest in working with children. They receive extensive training prior to the summer and
ongoing supervision during the summer to ensure they provide the highest quality care. They are trained in purposeful programming, group dynamics, child development, conflict resolution, safety procedures and more. Two Israeli Shlichim (counselors from Israel)
will be at camp all summer infusing Israeli culture into Camp J.
Following the regulations from Kentucky and recommendations from the CDC, Camp J will still be the best place for fun, growth, and development during the summer months. We are taking measures to
ensure that campers can have a good time and enjoy their day at camp while staying socially distant when necessary and avoiding contact with others outside of their group.
The beautiful JCC campus includes three outdoor pools, gaga pits, open outdoor fields, as well as indoor gymnasiums, classrooms, auditoriums, and more! Visit our website for more information on all camps, grounds, and staff.
