Summer Camp at the JCC: Our Approach

Every day at Camp JCC is packed full of activities, friendship, ruach (spirit) and adventure. While our campers rave that Camp JCC is “the best place ever” we know that spending a summer at Camp JCC provides opportunities to gain valuable skills. When campers earn their deep water bracelets, we know they are improving their swim skills while also increasing their self-esteem and confidence. When they try to cross the zip line for the first time, we know they are learning to take risks and make decisions for themselves.

Camp JCC provides programs that bring out the best in every camper and grow their abilities that they will use for the rest of their lives.


All Are Welcome

The Bender JCC embraces and welcomes the diversity of our community and encourages everyone to seek meaning and fulfillment by participating in our rich programming inspired by our Jewish heritage.

We open our doors to everyone, including people of all backgrounds, religions, abilities and sexual orientations, and interfaith couples and families.

Inclusion permeates our Center. Inclusion is belonging.

From swimming and day trips to creative arts, Camp JCC has options to make this the best summer ever. Every program at Camp JCC allows campers to grow, explore their strengths, and build Jewish identity. Plus, convenient transportation options, extended day camp programs and pre- and post-camp sessions are designed to meet your summer camp needs.

Experienced professionals supervise and implement all Camp JCC programs, and campers are under the direct supervision of a trained staff member at all times.

If you love Camp JCC, tell everyone you know that it’s the place to be! You’ll be rewarded and your friend will have the best summer ever!
