Camps & After School

Day Camps and Afterschool header

Experience camping and afterschool programs at the J!

The J is committed to Camping — summer day camp, residential camp, or for days off school. With two award-winning experiences, your children will have the time of their lives this summer.

Play. Connect. Grow. J Day Camps.

J Day Camps are the place for your family. Every child is welcome at the J, and our camps feature the activities kids love most – like swimming, sports, gymnastics and arts.

Study after study supports what camp directors have been saying for decades: Camp does kids a world of good. Summer camp provides a platform for children to strengthen their soft skills. Self-confidence and self-reliance are the foundation of what great camps provide. These pillars offer support for campers to make new friends, develop and improve skills such as swimming foster creativity and promote physical activity. Camp is a face-to-face community, giving campers daily practice dealing with real situations and experiencing a range of emotions. Campers learn through friendship, teamwork, working through new experiences, and a lot of success.

When school is out, Vacation Days are in!

Your child can spend their days off at the J with friends and engage in a variety of activities (like swimming, games, crafts and recreation) at the Staenberg Family Complex in Creve Coeur. Vacation Days run from 9am to 3pm on days when local school districts are not in session – holidays and snow days. Before and after-care options are available, too. Vacation Days are for kids in grades K-6.

Not hitting the road for Spring Break? Check out our Spring Break Camp at the J! Your kids will spend spring break participating in activities such as numerous sports, arts and crafts, cooking,  games, swimming and much more! Be sure to bring a towel, lunch, swimsuit and towel.
