A Day at Camp (Professional Development/Jewish holiday)
8:00 - 9:00am
Through our creative programs and innovative curriculum discover something new at Camp JCC! Many of the great activities include swimming, crafts and outdoor adventures. We will have specialty instructors coming in throughout the weeks to teach an array of classes such as yoga, karate, dance and much more. We will also be swimming just about every day, so make sure to pack your child’s swim gear! In addition to providing a wonderful camp experience, we want you to know your child's safety and well-being are our primary goals. Camp staff participate in an intense training session, come with past experience working with children and are well-supervised and supported.
