About Jewish Summer Day Camp:
As a Jewish day camp, Camp Shelanu is based on Jewish values and includes learning about Jewish culture and traditions. However, there is no religious instruction or discussion of theology at camp. All JCC programs are open to anyone who wishes to participate, regardless of religious affiliation or background.
Location and Facilities: Camp Shelanu takes place at the Levin JCC at 1937 W Cornwallis Rd, Durham NC, 27705. The facility includes a 5-lane lap pool with diving board and a zero-entry Family Fun pool with a looping water slide, full-sized gym, art and music classrooms, dance studio, and access to fields, playground, and wooded areas.
Camp Staff: Our staff members, all of whom participate in a comprehensive training program, are mature high school and college students, or adults with camping, teaching, or recreational experience. Counselor to camper ratio is 1:9.
Ages: Campers must turn 5 by July 1st.
Summer Day Camp Field Trips:
Check back for 2017 trip dates and destinations. Traditional Camp for 2nd-5th graders has a trip to Wet ‘n’ Wild week 8. Camp Sabra has a trip or a late stay each week. Past field trips have included Museum of Life and Science, SkyZone, Jordan Lake, Falls Lake, JumpZone, The Conservator’s Center, Defy Gravity, and Triangle Rock Club. Transportation is by bus, and high staff ratios and supervision procedures are in place.
Weather: Camp Shelanu is an indoor/outdoor camp. In the event of inclement weather, including severe heat, daily activities will be modified.
Wait List Policy: If a camp is full you may be placed on a wait list and will be contacted by staff if we are able to add you into the camp. No payment is due unless you are contacted about availability.
Cancellation Policy: If the JCC cancels camp for any reason, full credit or a refund will be issued. If you decide to cancel a session, we issue refunds (minus a $50 fee per camper per session) up to 7 days before the first day of a session. Please submit your request in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org. Refunds will not be given for missed days due to illness.
Late Registration Policy: A $15 Late Registration fee will be assessed on any registration made fewer than 7 days before the start of any camp session.
Financial Assistance: Camp Shelanu strives to serve the entire community. Scholarship funds are available based on demonstrated need and awarded through a confidential process. We have two kinds of scholarships: need-based sliding scale awards and one free week for children of veterans. Click here for details.
