Please also keep in mind that in the event that there is an accumulation of snow and the Center remains open, programs and services could be limited based on staff availability. Thanks, and stay safe!

Specialty Camps (Grades: K-8): A Camp for Every Interest

These 11-week camps mix learning and fun, with focused instruction from trained professionals and just the right balance of summertime adventure. Here, kids enjoy a safe, interactive environment where every camper's physical, mental and social development needs are met.

Registration for camp 2018 will open for Weinstein JCC members later in January and on February 5 for non-members. And mark your calendars for our Members-Only Registration Day on Sunday, February 4 from 12-2PM!
