The JCC’s Early Childhood Lower Camp - directed by early childhood educators - is designed to enhance the preschool experience for your young child. Led by our professional Nursery School staff, Uptown campers who currently attend the JCC Nursery School will benefit from continuity of care, enjoying summer in a familiar environment. In Metairie, the JCC works closely with our partners at the Jewish Day School to provide a seamless transition from a school setting to summer fun. For JCC newcomers, camp is a chance to experience the diversity of our membership and to learn, play, and grow with the loving support given by our staff. Youngsters have fun while building the social and emotional foundations needed for future success as they grow. Activities include swimming and water play, music, art, sports, and more!
Camp hours are 9:00 AM - 3:30 PM Monday - Friday. JCC membership is required to enroll in Summer Camp.
