A tradition since 1952, the Levite Jewish Community Center’s summer camps are filled with opportunities for children to play, explore, and experience in an environment based on Jewish values and culture. Our Camp LJCC program is open to children entering kindergarten through 8th grade. and includes everything from outdoor activities to singing and dancing, so your child is sure to have a good time. Day camps are offered each week along with sports and specialty camp options to fit any interests. Additionally camp weeks are a la carte, so you can sign up for one, two, or the entire summer.
As part of our goal of community outreach and inclusivity, families who find the full cost of Camp LJCC too difficult to manage are urged to contact or stop by the Membership Office to obtain a scholarship application.
