All campers should bring seasonally appropriate clothing for outdoor activities, weather permitting, as well as sneakers to play in the gym.

“We’ve got so many neat things planned each day to help the kids jump right into summer vacation,” said Erin Hart, the JCC’s assistant director of Children and Teen Services. “Some of the cool summertime activities we have lined up include swimming, sports, arts and crafts, games and more.”
