CAMP Camp JCC 2019 | 1






Welcome to a world created just for children. (Standing
since 1959
Camp JCC is designed with the purpose
of nurturing discovery, exploration, active
participation, responsibility, individual growth,
and lifelong relationships. Most importantly, it
is designed for fun, because having fun is the
work of children. Surrounded by extraordinary
and dedicated staff, Camp JCC is a place where
campers can be themselves and have fun through
healthy challenges, teamwork, and a supportive
environment, integrating what they learn into their
daily lives; we call this the Camp-to-Life Experience.

Our camp staff members come to work at

Camp JCC from a variety of backgrounds and
life experiences, but they are all here for the
same reason: For the campers! Many of our
staff are camp alumni and return to Camp
JCC to work for multiple years. Camp staff
orientation covers camper safety, program
design and implementation, leadership,
teambuilding, and the best practices to work
with campers. We provide training to deepen
staff knowledge on a variety of camp and
youth topics.

welcomed with the largest smiles and an energy that From your traditional flag-raising and art, to Judaics
can only be found here. It doesn’t matter if it’s your
camper’s first day or forty-fifth: Camp JCC is where (learning)
they want to be.

From the start, we focus on the shared values that
everyone wants for their children: sportsmanship,
teamwork, responsibility, inclusion, and respect.
We do so using a Jewish lens to break down the use
of every value and encourage our campers to think
not only of the how of their behavior, but also the
why. Our staff is trained to be engaging with campers
at all levels, and the professionals we partner with
