Teen Camps

Teen Camps are a great 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 for 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! 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

J Voyage Teen Travel  |  Ages 12-16

Join our friends from the Katz JCC on two amazing overnight experiences for teens this summer. Teenagers ages 12-16 will embark on two epic journeys across America and Canada. Campers will travel by bus, boat, and plane to explore great locations while creating lifelong memories and seeing some of the best state parks, cities, and locales each region has to offer. Every destination visited will have something unique to teach our young travelers. Immersing in a completely different environment is the best learning experience one can have. J Voyage allows teenagers to discover new customs, cultures, and places while making new friendships and memories along the way. The group will stay at different JCCs, KOA Cabins, and university dorm rooms, exposing teens to the big world at our doorstep.  Supervised by adult staff and certified teachers – the JCC’s J Voyage Teen Tour is the ultimate summer road trip for your camper!

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
