JCC Summer Camps

Register Now

Located at both the Uptown and Metairie campuses, the JCC Summer Day Camp has enriched the lives of children for decades. We put the emphasis on fun, safety, and developing confidence.

At the JCC, there are endless opportunities for campers to explore their interests and make new friends. Campers swim every day and participate in a variety of indoor and outdoor activities led by specialists in music, art, drama, sports, and Israeli culture.

Our camp staff will ensure that your child has endless opportunities to explore his or her interests, discover new ones, and develop meaningful friendships. We look forward to sharing the summertime with you and your family.
