Weinstein JCC Summer Camps

For Kids in Preschool through 10th Grade

About Our Summer Camps

We have camps for every interest at the Weinstein JCC!

All of our camps provide a fun and safe environment where children enhance their social skills and learn many new things about themselves and the world in which they live. Everyone here had a blast last summer at Weinstein JCC Day Camps. From exploring the outdoors at Camp Hilbert to exciting field trips with Kids’ Place, from fun for little ones at Camp Ganim to camps for every interest at our Specialty Camps, last summer was one for the memory books for sure!

Camp Ganim

Camp Ganim offers educational, creative, and rich opportunities for children ages 2-5 to interact with and explore the natural world. They run, climb, dig, collect, pretend, take risks and create while exploring sand, mud, flowers, insects and the great outdoors! Add swimming, art, water play, music, gardening, and caring counselors, and what a perfect summer your child will have! For more information, check out our Camp Ganim page.

Specialty Camps

Specialty Camps is a 10-week program of pure fun and excitement. Does your child ever dream of creating LEGO masterpieces, becoming a star athlete, or building robots? Specialty Camps has all those interests and more! Our camps provide professional and focused instruction which result in fun with learning mixed in. Our goal is to provide an interactive and safe environment that ensures every camper’s physical, mental, and social development needs are met. Every week brings new adventures! For more information, check out our Specialty Camps page.

Voices Together

Voices Together is a safe and structured day camp for children on the autism spectrum. Campers participate in both indoor and outdoor activities that keep them engaged and entertained, including art, music therapy, swimming, science and classroom and gym games. The professional staff and teen volunteers make this an experience your child will not forget! For more information, check out our Voices Together page.

Camp Hilbert

Camp Hilbert has been the home of happy campers for the past 75 years. Nestled in the heart of Goochland County, our beautiful 110-acre site is the ideal day camp setting for exploring the outdoors, building, and developing new skills, and forging lifelong friendships. Camp Hilbert offers the classic summer camp experience. Campers enjoy Athletics, Performing Arts, Boating and Fishing, Art, and Israeli Culture. All campers swim twice a day, a morning instructional period and an afternoon free swim period. Late stays, overnights, and special events throughout the summer help make lifelong memoriesJoin us for the best summer ever, and memories that will last a lifetime! For more information, check out our Camp Hilbert page.

Teen Opportunities

Our teen camps are excellent volunteer opportunities designed to help participants meet their school’s community service requirements, while still having an exciting, fun and meaningful summer experience. The CIT program offers participants a chance to practice new skills while working with campers at either Specialty Camps or Camp Hilbert. Becoming a peer camper at Voices Together provides participants the opportunity to work closely with campers on the Autism Spectrum. Both of our teen camps allow participants to work closely with our dynamic camp staff while learning the skills necessary to work with all our campers. For more information, check out our Teen Opportunities page.

Instructional Swim

With our state-of-the-art Aquatics Center at Camp Hilbert and the Weinstein JCC recreational pool used for Camp Ganim, our Instructional Swim Program features everything to ensure our campers gain swimming competence to last a lifetime. As the summer progresses, the campers attain new skills and move up to the next level to gain confidence in all areas of swimming.
