JCCDC Camp Information


Summer Camp at The JCCDC

Give your child the opportunity to form lasting relationships while exploring nature everyday this summer!  The ECC Summer Program offers two groups; Camp Buddies: for children aged 2 and 3, and Explorers: Children ages 3-6. Explorers must be fully potty trained as they swim in our indoor pool every day.   Camp runs for 8 weeks from July 2 through August 24th.  Weekly themes include Gardening, Insects, Art, Drama, Cooking, Music, Outdoor Construction, and Sports Skills. We’ll celebrate the USA in early July, have field days, explore other cultures, and create original songs and skits.  Our beautiful campus offers the children opportunities to explore nature as they garden, raise beneficial insects, learn to compost, build their own play platforms in the woods, experiment in our outdoor science stations, add to our outdoor Music center, and explore many mediums as they create lasting works of art.  Our young paleontologists will learn about the history of our planet as they dig for fossils and create dinosaur dioramas in our Dino Dig Station. Air conditioned indoor classrooms will be used as each group’s base.  Our full sized gym is available for activities during inclement weather. All activities are tied to our overall theme of Nature Exploration. The staff will focus on supporting group projects and helping each child form lasting relationships. Our professional ECC staff is CPR and First Aid trained and there is a Medical Administration Trained head of group.  Group ratios follow NYSOCFS guidelines.

 Campers bring their lunch (peanut and tree nut free). Several healthy snacks are provided for campers each day. For further information on what to bring, please click here.

Early and late care will be available by reservation at an additional $6 per hour.
