J Camp: A summer tradition since 1952

For rising 1st- through 7th-graders

J Camp provides the legendary wonders and excitement of a Jewish day-camp experience.

From the pool to the playground to Levite Field and beyond, every day is filled with laughter, song, and ruach (spirit) — all within a positive and nurturing environment.

Our camps are filled with opportunities for children to play, explore, and experience the best of summer camp in a diverse environment based on Jewish values and culture.

J Camp, our day camp program, is open to everyone and includes indoor and outdoor activities, singing, dancing, sports, swimming, field trips, and much more. J Camp runs from May 28 through August 2, 2024.

What’s your specialty?

We offer more than a dozen specialty summer camps. From traditional sports like tennis and basketball to the edgier ultimate, plus chess and the artsy endeavors of filmmaking and Showstoppers — we’ve got a camp you’re sure to love.

Trained staff

From organizing engaging activities to fostering a sense of community spirit, our counselors play a crucial role in making J Camp a memorable and enriching experience for every camper. Counselors are CPR certified and complete intensive training in leadership, safety, and camp programming to ensuring that your child’s time at J Camp will be safe and filled with fun, laughter, and meaningful connections that extend far beyond the camp experience.

Apply by April 1 to be a counselor-in-training

Apply for our counselor-in-training (CIT) program that teaches leadership skills and responsibility to rising 8th through 10th graders. CITs split their time between working with camper groups and training alongside other CITs.

The CIT program is designed to be a transitional summer between camper and staff, allowing these lucky, hand-selected teens to have fun while challenging themselves and gaining valuable life experience (while earning a stipend).
