Welcome to a world created just for you.
Camp JCC is designed with the purpose of nurturing discovery, exploration, active participation, responsibility, individual growth, and lifelong relationships. Most importantly, it is designed with the purpose of having Fun, because Fun is the best lens to experience and engage with the world. Surrounded by extraordinary and dedicated staff, Camp JCC is a place where campers can be themselves and have fun through healthy challenges, teamwork, and a supportive environment.
Camp JCC is a warm and inclusive camp community committed to the values of the Siegel Jewish Community Center, and we offer an outstanding variety of programs to meet all campers' needs. Camperswill participate in engaging, meaningful, and exciting activities on our 32 acre campus.
The JCC Traditional Camp experience offers spirited camp songs at daily Flag Raising, a purposeful focus on shared Judaic values, and access to our low and high ropes challenge courses! Programs areas include Action (Sports and Games), Creation (A&C, Music, Drama), and Exploration (Nature, World Culture, Israeli Culture) all of which accompany daily swimming in the largest outdoor pool in North Wilmington with our 50ft spiral water slide! For our 6th-8th graders, you will have control of your schedule, building it by selecting Electives and Clubs, participating in activities you choose geared to your specific interests. Every Friday is a different theme and a brand new, exciting schedule!
We also have programs geared to our oldest campers that provide the extra fun and challenge we know you crave. From 7th-10th grade you can opt into one of our popular Travel Camps, spending a week with friends at various locations, from Theme Parks and Go-kart Tracks to Paintball and Escape Rooms. Our 7th-9th friends can join a Mitzvah Camp, helping out on a week-long service project to better our community. Starting at 8th Grade, you can opt into our Leaders-in-Training program to start developing professional skills while having fun in the Camp setting. Our highest level of Camper is the Counselor-In-Training who, as they enter 10th grade, receive the knowledge and test the skills in a real work-environment by assisting our Camp Staff as they train as Counselors.
Our camp staff comes to work at Camp JCC from a variety of backgrounds, and life experiences, but they are all here for the same reason: For the campers! Many of our staff are camp alumni, and return to Camp JCC to work for multiple years. Camp staff orientation covers camper safety, program design and implementation, leadership, teambuilding, and the best practices to work with campers. We utilize ExpertOnlineTraining.com to deepen staff knowledge on a variety of camp and youth topics presented by the leading minds in the camping industry. We retain highly qualified and trained staff and boast excellent camper to staff ratios that meet or exceed ACA and state requirements.
