to MJCC Day Camp At the Mittleman Jewish Community Center, we encourage growth, inspire confidence, and provide the framework for lasting memories and friendships. We provide quality programs that are age-appropriate, fun, and safe. Our camp is imbued with a sense of Simcha (joy), Kehila (community), Ruach (spirit), and Kef (fun). Throughout all our programs, we encourage discovery and self-expression.

Our swimming program is one of the great benefits of MJCC Day Camp! We have an outstanding aquatic facility that allows kids to enjoy the water safely under the close supervision of Red Cross certified lifeguards.

Simcha Classic campers swim in our warm water pool every day! Twice per week swim lessons include floating, kicking, body position, water safety, and underwater skills. Three days per week, the warm water pool will be available for Simcha Classic Camp open swim. For campers participating in Tu/Th only, swim lessons are not available.
