The camp for school-age children entering grades K-6 will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays Aug. 22 through Sept. 2 at the JCC of Syracuse on 5655 Thompson Rd. in DeWitt.

Early- and late-care options are available to extend each day from 7 am to 6 pm. Half-day options are also available most days. Children may attend just one day or up to all ten.

“We’ve got so many cool things planned each day it will be like one big end-of-summer bash,” said Mick Hagan, JCC director of Children and Teen Services. “We’re going to make this a summer to remember with lots of cool activities such as arts and crafts, games, swimming, sports and more.”

The camp will feature a variety of age-appropriate indoor and outdoor activities as well as special theme days such as water day, super hero day and wacky Wednesday. Field trips to Clark Reservation State Park, Green Lakes State Park and the New York State Fair are also planned.

All campers should bring seasonally appropriate clothing for outdoor activities including sneakers, swimsuit and towel, hat and sun block. Full-day campers are asked to bring a non-meat lunch. An afternoon snack will be provided.

Early registration pricing for the “So-Long Summer” vacation camp is available through August 12. Discounts are offered for JCC members and siblings. Registration will continue right up until and throughout the camp, space permitting. Current JCC membership or program enrollment is not required to enroll your child.
