Campers of all backgrounds are welcome. We instill a sense of community and connection to Jewish culture, values and history. Jewish values are integrated into our programs and activities in a manner which appeals to people of all faiths. The best camp swim program in town! Both J locations have indoor and outdoor pools, and most campers participate in Red Cross certified swim instruction and/or free swim daily. The J supports children of all abilities! The J invites and welcomes all children, including those with disabilities, to participate in camp and other programs. Individualized inclusion support is available to qualifying campers with disabilities who may need additional support throughout the camp day. The Inclusion team works with parents and campers to deliver services best suited to meet your child’s needs. In order to qualify, your child must have a diagnosed disability that requires an IEP during the school year, the J team must determine that we are capable of meeting your child’s needs, and you must complete all required intake forms. In order to receive inclusion support, you must contact Inclusion Supervisor, Shamecka Nichols at snichols@jccstl.org or 314.442.3295.

Financial Aid To apply for financial assistance, download a scholarship application at jccstl.org, or contact Sally Lang at slang@jccstl.org or 314.442.3241. A Day Camp application, non-refundable deposit and scholarship application must be submitted in order to be considered. Scholarship dollars are limited. Applications must be received no later than April 12, 2019, with payment arrangements made prior to the start of camp.

Inclusion support for qualified campers is dependent on availability of staff, and preference will be given to those families who register for the entire summer before March 7. Next preference will be given to families who register for the greatest number of weeks before March 7.

Enrollment in J Day Camps for those requiring support is complete and only upon final receipt of two separate email confirmations: 1) from the J Day Camp Registrar and 2) from J Inclusion Supervisor Shamecka Nichols. 1:1 Inclusion support is limited, and we may not be able to accommodate all families who apply.
