Our CIT program allows teens to gain leadership skills and valuable experience working with children, while enjoying the traditional camp experience. Throughout the summer, CITs will receive training that emphasizes important life skills such as self-confidence, teamwork, and being a good role-model.

Lead and Learn

The opportunity to work with younger campers will help them develop as leaders and prepare them for future roles at camp or in the community. CITs help implement special camp activities, as well as work on a community service project throughout the summer. They will also have the opportunity to take part in our camp-wide programming and programs designed just for them. CITs are an important part of the Camp JCC community.

Camp JCC is a day camp. Are you considering overnight camp, too?

APITAL CAMPS IS THE JEWISH COMMUNITY OFFICIAL OVERNIGHT CAMP SERVING THE VIRGINIA BEACH, RICHMOND AND GREATER WASHINGTON, AND BALTIMORE AREAS.

JCC’s all over the East Coast send campers to Capital Camps, and transportation to and from camp via the Simon Family JCC is included as part of the Capital Advantage. For more information, visit capitalcamps.org or contact us at info@capitalcamps.org or 301-468-2267.

Located just 60 minutes north of Greater Washington, Capital Camps provides a fun, meaningful Jewish overnight experience for campers in grades 2 - 12. With a variety of activities from sports to aquatics to drama, Capital Camps’ state-of-the-art facility and first-rate staff provide a high quality immersive experience to Jewish youth.


Do you have a sibling discount? If 2 or more children from the same family are registered for the same week, families receive a discount of $25 per child per week for every child after the first enrollee.

Do you provide lunch and a snack for my child? Lunch is available for purchase on a weekly basis, or campers can bring their own lunch and beverage. We ask that you respect Kosher laws. Please remember that camp is peanut free! A kosher snack is provided in the morning for Lower Camp and an afternoon treat is provided for all campers.

Do you offer financial assistance? The JCC strives to ensure no child is denied a camp experience. Scholarships are available on a first-come first-served basis until all funds are allocated. Applications are available online or at the Center. Financial Aid applications are due by April 15, 2013.

What kind of swim instruction do you provide? Campers learn basic techniques and water safety skills under the supervision and guidance of our Red Cross certified lifeguards.

What if I decide I need to cancel my child’s enrollment? All cancellations must be in writing 14 days prior to the start of the week of camp to be cancelled. All deposits are non-refundable. Parents cancelling after the 14 day deadline may be responsible for any remaining balance of the cancelled week.

Can you accommodate children with special needs? The Simon Family JCC works to provide a fully integrated experience for all children. With the help of specially trained staff, we offer accommodations for children with a variety of physical, emotional, intellectual and developmental needs. Initial personal meetings with the family are required before enrollment. Please call the JCC to schedule your consultation. How do I pay for camp? We accept cash, check, VISA, MasterCard and Discover. A non-refundable deposit of 25% of the total fees is due at the time of registration, with the remaining balance due by June 1, 2013. Registration after June 1, 2013 requires payment in full. Is there a registration fee? There is a one-time, non-refundable $50 registration fee per child.

Do you give refunds if my child gets sick and can’t attend camp? Unfortunately, we are unable to reduce fees due to absence, illness, family matters, holidays (including July 4) or vacations. All registration fees and deposits are non-refundable. The JCC makes every effort to provide campers with a great camping experience, the JCC cannot be held responsible for acts of G-d, and will not provide refunds for natural disasters that may interfere with the camp experience. How do I register my child? All forms are available for download at CampJCC.org. You can also visit the JCC Customer Service Desk for paper forms.
