Camp J of Southwest Orlando: Summer 2013
About Camp J
EARLY CHILDHOOD CAMP
Two Years to Pre-K
PEOPLE YOU CAN TRUST.
The JCC hires the best of the best to teach your child for the summer. Our teachers and counselors are caring, fun-loving, and most of all, kid-friendly. They are first-aid and CPR-certified, and are versed in the complexities of children’s social, psychological and physical development. JCC staff are trained to provide your children with feelings of success, confidence, enthusiasm, and self-worth. Our rigorous pre-camp staff training program teaches group dynamics, conflict resolution, peer relationships, self-esteem, safety, and creative programming. For additional security, all staff are background-checked by FDLE. And for your peace of mind, our staff will be in constant communication.
WHY PARENTS LOVE CAMP J
“I can always count on the J for the best high quality kids programs! I don’t have to go anywhere else…. it’s all here on one campus! My kids have participated in a variety of JCC summer camps, including General camp, Hoopstars Basketball camp and Theatre South camps for several years now and it feels like home.” —Linda N.
A VALUES CURRICULUM
The JCC strives to incorporate diversity by integrating a values curriculum into its programming. Participants are taught tolerance and appreciation for others, forgiveness, and the importance of standing up for what is good and right. At Camp J, kids gain a better understanding of Jewish heritage and culture, learning about Israel and customs through song, dance, drama, art, and special theme days.
Friday is a special day at camp, because it marks the morning before the Jewish Shabbat, or Sabbath. In order to make the day feel special, we ask that elementary and middle school campers (youth camp) wear a white shirt, and preschoolers wear their camp shirt, on Fridays. We also recognize our most spirited elementary and middle school campers that day by awarding the “ruach stick,” or spirit stick—a fun camp tradition.
