J Day Camps BrochureParent Manual

The J has provided Day Camp experiences that promote happiness, growth and friendships for four generations of campers. We offer a variety of weekly camps for children ages 3-15, including traditional, sports, arts, gymnastics, STEM, pre-school, teen, leadership development and more. All of our activities help campers develop self-esteem, confidence, leadership and friendships.

The J Day Camps welcome diversity!

Campers of all backgrounds are welcomed regardless of race, faith or national origin. We strive to instill a sense of community and connection to Jewish culture, values and history. Jewish values are integrated into our programs and activities in a manner which appeals to all people.

Everyone can camp at the J!

The J invites and welcomes ALL persons, including those with disabilities, to participate in camp and other programs. Contact Sara Rambo, Inclusion Coordinator, 314-442-3295, by April 1, 2016, for more information about our inclusion program. Space is limited.

Swim Program

What fun would summer be without swimming? Both J locations have outdoor and indoor pools, so there’s no need to spend time riding a bus to enjoy the pool. All campers receive certified swim instruction or enjoy recreational swim daily.

If you have any questions, call Brad Chotiner, Camp Director, at 314-442-3423.
