Campers will enjoy an exciting summer of fun, friendship, and learning at JCC Summer Camp through a variety of activities, field trips, special events, swim, and many other options. Yes, OPTIONS! True, we follow a regular schedule, but within that schedule, we want our campers to have a say in what they do each day since it is their summer too! An Aleph Group classroom option will be available for campers who are entering the 1st grade. This will give them an opportunity to have a home-based experience while still participating in all camp has to offer.
New this year in 2018!

Get ready for a summer filled with fun, social action, and community leadership! Loosely based on the Hebrew saying, “Tikkun Olam,” Repair the World gives 6th, 7th, and 8th-grade students the chance to implement and accomplish service projects of all kinds. Repair the World seeks to take action in our immediate community to bring awareness to particular causes and agents of social development. Through Repair the World, students learn about the significance of volunteerism and the positive results that it yields through community service projects, charity events, and fundraising efforts. Repair the World students are also invited to take part in all that Summer Camp at the J has to offer!
As a member of the Counselors-in-Training (CIT) Program for the Summer Camp at the J, 9th and 10th graders have the opportunity to get experience as a summer camp counselor, while also helping to create a better community in York. Every week, teens work hands-on with groups of campers ranging from 1st through 6th grade in all manner of activity. In conjunction with a trained camp counselor, CIT’s assist counselors in planning and carrying out activities for campers, including arts, science, sporting events, and community service projects. CIT’s coordinate their efforts with our Repair the World group, who devise and produce camp-wide projects to help the greater good within our immediate community. Every two weeks, CIT’s meet with guest speakers such as state representatives and non-profit organization leaders to give them a better understanding of the world around them.
For this age group only we offer the option of Mornings 9 to 11:30 AM or Full Day 9 AM – 3 PM
Children spend the summer exploring with friends. Together, teachers and children explore weekly themes in a spirit of play both inside the classroom and outside in the play yard. Experienced teachers encourage and guide children in music, art, literature, games, and science activities. For more information, Contact Kristen Nowak.
