This year, J Day Camps offer even more! We’ve lined up awesome partners to expand our selections: STEAM camps in partnership with Saul Mirowitz Jewish Community School, and sports camps with Hi-NRG, Scott Gallagher and more! Plus swimming, lunch, field trips and even better pre- and post-care. We have the best summer camps! We have a camp for every kid, and every kid is welcome at the J.

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

Swim Program

What fun would summer be without swimming? Both J locations have indoor and outdoor pools, and most campers participate in Red Cross certified swim instruction and/or free swim daily.

The J Day Camps welcome diversity!

The J Day Camps encourage diversity. Campers of all backgrounds are welcome. We 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 people of all faiths.

Everyone can camp at the J!

The J invites and welcomes all children, including those with disabilities, to participate in summer camp and other programs. Individualized inclusion support is available to qualifying campers with disabilities who may need additional support throughout the summer camp day. The Inclusion team works with parents and campers to deliver services best suited to meet your child’s needs. In order to qualify, your child must have a diagnosed disability that requires an IEP during the school year, the J team must determine that we are capable of meeting your child’s needs, and you must complete all required intake forms. In order to receive inclusion support, you must contact Inclusion Coordinator Shamecka Nichols, 314-442-3295.
