Camp J Day Camp

summer 2022 details coming this winter

The Best Day Camp in Tucson

As one of the only American Camp Association accredited day camps in Tucson, Camp J is Tucson’s most trusted camping programs. Our summer camp is full of fun activities that promote creativity, initiative, and leadership.

Day camp at the J is much more than childcare–it’s a place for having experiences that last a lifetime. We are in the business of creating lifelong friendships, turning summer memories into lifelong stories, and teaching and developing lifelong skills. 

Our Camp staff are all CPR/First Aid certified and background checked. Additionally, they receive extensive pre-camp training in safety, behavior management, conflict resolution, and group dynamics.

Campers enjoy the Tucson J’s indoor PlaySpace, kosher demonstration kitchen, full-sized gym, youth locker rooms, pool, Splash Park, outdoor fields, tennis courts, playgrounds, computer lab, art studio, dance room, youth lounge, and more!
