New this summer: JCP Camp introduces Kayiz 2015, our Hebrew Language Camp Initiative. All JCP campers will take part in a Hebrew language specialty program and will have additional exposure to Hebrew language, vocabulary, and music during their camp days. In addition, All-Camp Kabbalat Shabbat will take place each Friday. All campers will come together to feel the community spirit and sing Shabbat songs. At registration, parents may pre-order challah for their child to take home each Friday, carrying over the Shabbat feeling from camp to home.

Our camp staff are highly trained and experienced early childhood educators who bring creativity and excitement to each camp day.
