2014 Jcc SUMMER CampS


Like never before 2014 is going to be a summer like never before at JCC camps! Not only are we introducing several new camps on our Owings Mills campus, but we have also enhanced our JCC Camps at Milldale to provide more exciting programs and opportunities for your camper to learn new skills and create lasting camp memories. We are thrilled to welcome Amy Bram as our new director for JCC Camps at Milldale. Amy comes to us with over 20 years of creative camp experiences. She is considered a rising star in the Jewish camping world and we are thrilled to have her talents here in Baltimore. Stay tuned for upcoming opportunities to meet Amy in the months ahead. This summer our youngest campers will have two new camp options. Noah’s Ark NEXT and Noah’s Ark Superstar Sports Camp have been designed for children ages 4 and 5 who are ready to step up their game and try out some new challenges. Children interested in sports, arts or adventure will enjoy our new Maccabi Sports Camp (grades 1-8), Habimah Performing Arts Camp (grades 1-5) and Tiyulim Travel Camps (grades 5-6). We are also welcoming a new partnership with the Jewish Volunteer Connection this summer. Camp Tzedek for grade school children and their Summer Service Programs for Teens will provide local youth with an opportunity to make a difference in the community. No matter which JCC camp you choose we are committed to providing an engaging and welcoming Jewish community for your child that encourages discovery, learning and fun.
