SHALOM (PEACE) ENTERING GRADES K-2

A program designed for campers to enjoy the traditional day camp experience and explore all Camp J has to offer. Grouped by age, campers are involved in programming designed to meet the needs of their developmental level. Shalom campers participate in activities led by experienced specialist instructors as well as get a taste of our Chugim (specialty choice electives). Daily swim and swim instruction are part of the summer fun.

GIBORIM (HEROES) ENTERING GRADES 3-5

Giborim is the Hebrew word for Heroes.  Daily activities and specialty programming develop your child’s sense of individuality and independence.  Giborim is designed to nurture creativity and build skills, while allowing campers to explore, have fun, and be a part of our camp community.

$310 / $360 GUEST 

TIYUL (TRIP) ENTERING GRADES 6-8

Tiyul is the Hebrew word for Trip.  Unfortunately this summer, we are unable to travel or take conventional trips.  Instead, this summer Tiyul will be on an experiential trip. This summer’s Tiyul program is designed to give older campers a unique experience built toward the needs of ‘tween and teen participants.  The structured freedom and intentional guidance helps to engage campers in teamwork and awareness of self. Campers will gain self-confidence by building new skills and making friends.

Inclusion

Our award-winning, Special Needs Inclusion Program is designed to include children with certain special needs into the Camp J day-camp setting. Children are carefully paired with advocates in a 1:1, 1:2, or 1:3 ratio. We work with parents, children, staff, and support coordinators as a team to create the best summer camp experience possible. About 15% of our campers are in the inclusion program, ages range from 5 to 12. For more information, contact Emily Malin at emalin@tucsonjcc.org or 520.299.3000 x168
