Woodworking
We’re always looking to add enriching new experiences to camp and this year, we’re excited to introduce our wonderful woodworking program! Campers in divisions Shalom and up will have the opportunity unleash their creativity and learn to build things by hand!
 
Why woodworking? We believe that this activity aligns with our camp mission to encourage kids to reach their full potential. As they work on their projects, campers will develop problem solving skills, patience, and a sense of responsibility. They will also hone their language processing, math, and social skills as they work in a positive collaborative environment.
 
We can’t wait to see what our campers will build this summer and, even more importantly, we can’t wait to see how much they’ll grow by learning a fun new hobby together!
Coding
Each year, our staff works hard to make JCC Day Camp the best it’s ever been. This means evaluating our programs and thinking about our campers’ needs and wants.
What will help campers develop into thoughtful adults?
What will encourage them to be their best?
And, most importantly, what will they find fun and enriching?

This summer, we are excited to add a new Coding program for our Maccabiah division! Maccabiah campers will have the opportunity to write computer programs that create interactive art, stories, games, simulations, and more.

Learning to code offers all the benefits of learning more traditional skills, while also preparing young people to move into an increasingly digital future. Novice coders will develop problem-solving and computational thinking skills as they discover what makes a line of code or a computer program work. Learning from their mistakes along the way, campers will develop perseverance and take pride in all they’ve learned when they see the working computer programs that they helped to make.

While your Maccabiah camper is still quite a few years away from college and the workplace, learning coding skills now may help set them apart from other applicants when the time comes. It may even spark a lifelong passion your camper never would have realized they had!

We’re so excited to get our new Coding program started this summer and can’t wait to see what our young computer scientists create!
