A Multi-faceted Summer Camp on the East Side

The Dwares JCC continues tradition of inclusion


One sign of a dynamic camp program is the focus of participatory inclusion for all ages, and at the Jewish Alliance’s Dwares JCC they continue that tradition. Michelle Cicchitelli, Alliance Senior Director of Youth and Family Engagement, explains, “We’re working to build the Pre-K camp connection with the upper camp themes.” This way, the younger kids get a true taste of the sports, nature, and outdoor experiences, which will start preparing them to be part of the larger camp program. And, as always, all lunches and snacks are included, towels are provided, and there is curbside drop-off/pickup service. Just have your child bring a swimsuit, a water bottle, and sunscreen at the start of each week, and you’re set.

There are many electives and specialty programs for campers to choose from, so two children the same age could have completely different experiences. Activities range from art, science, cooking, nature, culture, sports (including tennis), along with gymnastics and drama. There is regularly scheduled swim time and weekly field trips. Downtime is allotted as well for playing oversized board games, reading under a tree, or just to daydream. CITs are receiving more leadership skill training in their particular areas of interest, and field trips are expanding to further destinations. Camp spaces are filling up, so contact the JCC and register your child today for a wonderful summer of fun! You don’t have to be Jewish or a JCC member to enroll.
