2020 Camp Registration

Registration for all camps will open in late January for members and February 3 for non-members. 

 

2019 Camp Recap

Summer 2019 was another camp season for the memory books, and we're looking forward to many more camp adventures next year!

 

Adventures starts here!

Camp Ganim

Camp Ganim offers educational and safe opportunities for children ages 2-5 to interact with nature. They run, climb, dig, collect, pretend, take risks and create, while exploring sand, mud, flowers, insects and more! 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.

Camp Hilbert

Camp Hilbert is a safe, fun and nurturing environment where kids in grades K-10 can explore the outdoors. From the morning flag pole assembly to canoeing on beautiful Lake Rosalie, campers will enjoy a wide range of activities led by trained specialists designed to provide an experience unlike any other. Located in Goochland County, our 110-acre site is a perfect day camp setting. Let your children have the summer of a lifetime...and we’re sorry if they come home a little bit muddy! For more information, check out our Camp Hilbert page.

Specialty Camps

Specialty Camps allow campers to explore a special interest one week at a time, all summer long! Does your child ever dream of riding a horse, creating LEGO masterpieces, or building a computer app? Specialty Camps has all of 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 developmental needs are met. For more information, check out our Specialty Camps page.

Kids' Place Camps

Kids’ Place Camp is an exciting end-of-summer experience with two weeks of age-appropriate and fun-filled programs and activities. For more information, check out our Kids' Place Camps page.

Ganim Volunteer Corps

Ganim Volunteer Corps is designed to help participants in grades 7-12 meet their school’s community service requirements, while still having an exciting, fun and meaningful summer experience. Each participant will be placed in a Camp Ganim group in the morning to assist the counselors and will have the opportunity to learn valuable skills working with young campers. For more information, check out our Teen Camps page.

Instructional Swim

It is important to us that our campers gain swimming competence to last a lifetime. Hilbert and Camp campers participate in our Red Cross instructional swim. Our staff evaluates each swimmer and places him or her with campers of their same swim level. As the summer progresses, the campers attain new skills and move up to the next level to gain confidence in all areas of swimming.

Voices Together

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

Pages of Fun for All Ages

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!
