Camp JCC Delaware
Action. Creation. Exploration. These are the three pillars of activities at camp and the basis on which Camp JCC Delaware makes sure that every camper has a varied schedule that simultaneously meets their desires and interests and challenged them and pushes their boundaries to promote growth. By focusing on engaging camp activities and empowering the campers through choice programming, campers grow and develop over the course of the summer. Using camper family input to develop the camp schedule from the ground-up, Camp JCC Delaware is able to create a program that best benefits every camper and meets their needs.
