Come spend the summer at the SJCC Sports Camp, two-time winner of ParentMap magazine’s award for Best Sports Camp in the Puget Sound.
This action-packed camp is for athletes of all kinds. Through daily scrimmages and drills that emphasize sportsmanship and teamwork, kids fine-tune their sports skills and learn new games, techniques, and sports, so there’s something for every skill level. Each afternoon, they play an all-Sports Camp game, which brings all ages together to play traditional camp games like capture the flag and kickball.
We also integrate one of our summer camp values, derech eretz (respecting others), into our Sports Camp, with a focus on the spirit of sportsmanship and respect. We also look at sports through the lens of Jewish values and the true meaning of sportsmanship. We want all our campers to leave with the skills and confidence to compete in a variety of sports during the school year. How kids go about competing and winning are equally important.

A typical day at SJCC Sports Camp includes recreational swimming, sports skills, training exercises, fun and games, weekly field trips, friendly competition, ruach (spirit) challenges, and quiet activities that give campers a chance to relax with friends.

We take the utmost care at SJCC Sports Camp to place your child with children of similar ages and abilities. Children are grouped according to school grade in the coming fall; each team has its own special activities. A senior counselor and junior counselor will supervise each group of 10-12 children. You may request we group your child with friends of the same age; we will try to accommodate your request but we do not guarantee placement.
