Are You Ready For The Summer?

Is your child ready for fun and friendships? (We are!) Then J Day Camps is the place for your family. Every child from 3 years old to 14 years old is welcome at the J Day Camps, and our camps feature the activities kids love most – like swimming, sports, gymnastics and arts. Campers in 3rd grade and older even get to choose most of their daily activities!

Summer Camps For Everyone!

We encourage diversity – children of all backgrounds are welcome. Our kids and staff are diverse in every way imaginable, including personality, creativity, athletic ability, ethnicity, culture, developmental ability, gender, and religion. Our community allows your child to feel at ease and to learn more about other people in the world we all share.

The Life Enrichment department at the J provides accommodation and accessibility services to ensure that everyone can access and participate in our wonderful programs, regardless of ability or diagnosis. We also provide programs specifically designed for individuals with disabilities.

Caring, Well-trained, Professional Staff

Our staff is led by full-time, year-round camp professionals who guide and train our summer team through 30+ hours of training on how to “think like a parent, act like a friend.” Our new Day Camps Director Mat DeWinters is looking forward to a summer full of camp traditions, new activities, and fun in the sun.

Come Early, Have Fun, And Stay Late

Our Before and After Care options allow you and your child to extend the length of their day to fit your schedules. Come for the core day (9-3) or, if you need/want more camp, we offer morning and afternoon programs. We even have options for those parents who don’t have time to pack lunch!
