Typical Day

Typical day at the JCCAt 8:00, Early Care campers arrive and play cards or shoot some hoops. Between 8:30 and 8:45, the rest of the campers arrive on the side patio and are greeted by smiling counselors! We start our day with the Camp Shelanu song and the Hebrew word-of-the-day before campers head off to their first activity.

Specialty Camp campers dive right in to their focus, like trying out aerial dance in Circus Camp, or learning how to build beam bridges in Lego Engineering Camp. For traditional camp, groups disperse into various activities, like tie-dying a shirt in arts and crafts, making strawberry jam in Cooking, or taking a nature hike on the trails in Duke Forest.

By now, everyone is ready for lunch time! After lunch is free time in the gym or on the playground.

PoolIn the afternoon, there is time for another activity, like soccer or music, before swimming. Some campers will have swim lessons and some just free swim, depending swimming ability level. Maybe today is the day to take the yellow band test to be able to go down the slide!

After swimming, second snack and some songs and games round out the day until pick up at 3:30. After care campers play games, make friendship bracelets, or read stories. Can’t wait to come back tomorrow!
