Teen Camp








Teen Camps  |  Entering grades 7-10 (2018 INFO, REGISTRATION FOR 2019 OPENING IN JANUARY!)

This is a great camp option for families trying to transition into new schedules with independently minded teenagers.  Too young for a full-time paying job, and not old enough maybe to stay home on their own weeks at a time, Camp JCC knows how to keep teenagers engaged for summer fun! Plus, we encourage our teens to sign up together as these summer months are all about hanging out with your friends together! With a campus full of activities along with a variety of specialty camps planned throughout the summer just for groups of teenagers, we encourage you and your teen to look at a few weeks at a time, a leadership experience or even "geeking out" with robots and wizards. Your teen can bring their friends along or discover new friends with the same interests.  Summer is about fun with friends at this age!

  • Fun and enriching activities for our oldest campers
  • Fostering their growing needs for autonomy, and providing guidance in decision making processes
  • Helping them develop the skills needed to pair their budding independence with their desire to belong

Counselors in Training (CITs)  |  Entering Grade 10 | $25/week

If you have a young person who will be entering 10th grade in the fall and is thinking about a future summer job as a camp counselor, our CIT program is an ideal "practice-run" to see if they can handle the responsibility of meeting a daily schedule, being accountable for a group of younger children and maintaining calm under pressure from a full day of activities.  Since the minimum commitment is 4 weeks, but ideally  we do like to have our CITs for the whole summer, our scheduling keeps family vacation plans in mind.  Here are the highlights of CITs' experiences:

  • Have fun at Camp JCC while getting hands-on training working with campers and counselors
  • Participate in team building from the perspective of a participant and as a team leader
  • CIT’s will spend time with the specialists and bunks each week to gain real experience working with children and staff
  • Spend time with their fellow CIT’s and gain insight on how to turn their CIT lessons into resume- building experiences
