We believe that camp is LIFE and there’s no better place to experience it than at the JCC. Spread over 13 acres, the 170,000 square foot JCC campus offers all the best features of a sleepaway camp without ever having to leave the metroplex including: an outdoor pool, state-of-the-art theater and air-conditioned gymnasiums. Our enthusiastic staff is here to make this summer one you’ll never forget. We believe you don’t just go through life, you GROW through life!
We offer 7 unique camp programs. Whatever your child wants to experience this summer, we’ve got a camp for that! Camp Chai and Camp Simchah offer a classic day camp experience filled with a variety of activities and we also offer the following specialty camps: Gymnastics, Tennis, Sports, StarQuest, StarPower and Teen Travel Camp.
A Message From Our Director, Laura Seymour:
Summer 2019 – my 42nd year as the Camp Chai Director, but that doesn’t include the years I worked (and met my husband) at my sleep away camp or my years as a camper starting at age 5. Many have heard me say this – I believe that camp is the most important experience a child can ever have. Why? Because it is at camp, and especially at our J camps, that we provide more than fun – we teach life skills, share values, listen, nurture, care, build community, inspire, and more. We are the place for friendship, belonging, growing, teamwork, independence, and even RISK. We are a place for the whole family forever. “You may leave camp, but camp will never leave you.” Become a part of our family this year!
