Summer Camps

A Typical Day

Campers’ days are fun-filled with a nice balance of outdoor time in the sun and indoor air-conditioned activities, always under the expert care of our counselors and directors.

Each morning your camper will meet their bus counselor at their designated bus stop or at the JCC Brooklyn Windsor Terrace for those campers who pre-registered for early drop-off starting at 7:45 am.  With all campers in attendance by 9 am, we begin the day’s adventures. JCC Brooklyn Summer Day Camps (ages 4-14) are headquartered at the Bay Ridge Campus.  Our Bay Ridge campus includes acres of verdant fields with views of the Verrazano Bridge, and the breeze blowing off the water. We also have exclusive use of a private Bowling Alley, Theater, Gym, and Pool, and the rest that our many-acre-wide campus has to offer.

Your camper begins with recreational swim time in the pool under the expert guidance of our lifeguards. Safety is the first priority. Next is fun! We meet campers where they are and are happy to provide alternate poolside activities if your little one would rather not swim; we are always here to learn about your child and tailor camp to their needs!

Lunch is a picnic in the shade. Children bring their own nut-free delicacies. After lunch, campers play!

In the afternoon, campers rotate between a variety of activities with teaching artists and specialists, including Martial Arts, Theater in a 400-person auditorium on stage, Yoga, Archery, and Dance. Hebrew Dual Language Campers hear Hebrew from native Hebrew-speaking specialists throughout their day.  Snack time is provided.

In the afternoons, we provide a late pick-up option until as late as 6 pm at our Bay Ridge campus.

Specialist-Led Activities include but are not limited to recreational swim, water tag, inflatable water park, air-jumper, BMX biking, bowling, archery, GAGA, 360 scooters, pedal go-karts, arts and crafts, STEAM, theater, Music, Singing, Dance, Martial Arts, Yoga, Variety of Team Sports, and many more!
