We are taking enhanced measures to ensure that our camp areas remain clean, sanitized throughout the day, and deep-cleaned during the evening. A $25 per week cleaning fee will be added to all J Camp registrations to defray some of the additional costs of these safety measures.
Extend your child’s camp day with before- and after-camp care. Morning care is available from 7:30-9 am. Afternoon care from 4-6 pm. Register for extended care when you’re signing up for camp. Learn more >>
We’ll pick kids up in the morning and bring them back in the afternoon. Available from select locations. Learn more >>
