Our Staff
One of the most important parts of camp is our very talented and dedicated camp staff. Camp staff are carefully selected for their skills, experience and interest in working with children. Camp staff bring creativity and enthusiasm to camp every day. Specialists are all experienced and talented in their fields.

Camp JCC Specialty Camps are all led by specialists or professionals, along with Camp JCC staff assistance. We also bring in Shlichim (Israeli emissaries) who provide programs about culture and Israel. Camp JCC staff complete a comprehensive training program prior to summer camp as well as continued training throughout the camp season to ensure that all campers are provided with the highest quality of safety, programming and care.


Swimming at Camp
Stay cool in the pool! At Camp JCC, swimming is extra special. All lifeguards are American Red Cross certified, and our counselors swim with campers. Traditional and Specialty Campers* swim daily in the Shaw JCC indoor and outdoor pools. Please bring a bathing suit, towel and bag for wet items! 

*except for horseback riding camp.
