Upper Camp

Campers swim and splash in the outdoor pool, enjoy sports, drama, music, art, and celebrate Shabbat with song and dance. Color wars, themes-of-the-week, and extra special performances also contribute to a memorable summer at the JCC. In addition to free swim, all upper campers receive American Red Cross Swim instruction.  

Campers participate in the full scope of JCC Day Camp activities, including American Red Cross instructional swim lessons, along with sports, music, arts and crafts, dance, chess, and drama are just a few of the exciting activities awaiting your child.
