Let your child enjoy a ton of fun and excitement during their final week of summer vacation! The Sam Pomeranz Jewish Community Center will offer its “So-Long Summer” vacation camp for school-age children entering grades K-6 from August 26 through August 30 and September 3. The camp will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the JCC of Syracuse, 5655 Thompson Rd. in DeWitt.

Early- and late-care options are available to extend each day from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. Half-day options are also available most days. Children may attend just one day or up to all five days that the camp will be offered.

“With so many cool things planned, each day will be like one big adventure for the children,” said Amy Bisnett, JCC associate director of children’s programming. “We’ll be going on some field trips and we’re going to get everyone moving and having fun with activities like arts and crafts, games, swimming, sports and more.”

The camp will feature a variety of age-appropriate indoor and outdoor activities as well as a special Pokemon theme day on Monday, August 26. Field trips to the New York State Fair for older children and Rosamond Gifford Zoo are also planned.

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

Early registration pricing through August 15 starts at $32 per child for the half-day program and $50 for a full day for JCC members. A sibling discount is also offered. 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.
