The award-winning Early Childhood Camps (ECC) at the Katz JCC is the perfect place for little campers ages 2-5 to build their imagination, creativity and storytelling.  This summer, our 2021 summer camp theme will be all about GAMES!

We have designed two outstanding programs to meet the individual needs and interests of each age group. Our staff is composed of counselors, activity specialists, and American Red Cross certified lifeguards will provide your child with an incredible summer camp experience.

Early Childhood Camp for children 2.5 years old (by June 1st)
In our toddler developmentally appropriate bunk centric 2.5 – year-old program, campers will experience the best summer-time fun!  Days are filled with swimming, arts & crafts, music, sports and so much more! Each day, campers will enjoy time in their bunks with a games specialist that will promote movement, exercise and critical thinking-based activities.  They will also enjoy weekly outdoor sports periods with a sports and games specialist. Swim will include modified swim, with a more “free swim/water play” model, in the mushroom pool in our outdoor pool area. We are adding a splash area on our playground patio to add some more water fun for all.
