The Best Place To Be A Kid!
Each day at JCA surprises, excites and amazes. Our incredible programs encourage campers to try everything; sports, cultural arts, aquatics and nature activities. Campers come together for Shabbat celebrations, cookouts, themed events, field trips to Camp JCA Shalom in Malibu, as well as our own Maccabi Games.
Every child feels a part of a very special family. Learning to share, making decisions, and experiencing independence are all part of a magical Camp JCA Shalom Day Camp summer.
We currently offer two different summer camp programs:
DAY CAMP – 1st – 5th Grade
Day Camp is filled with a variety of fun filled activities with Jewish Values weaved throughout. The campers get a taste of everything from swimming to arts and crafts to crazy science to cooking and so much more. Day Campers get to swim on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and then get to go on a very special field trip to Camp JCA Shalom in Malibu on Thursdays.

LEADERS IN TRAINING (LIT) – 6TH – 8TH Grade
(LIT) Leadership-in-Training is geared toward those who want to become a camp counselor and are interested in becoming better leaders. Training includes topics such as camp leadership, group games, supervision, planning and administration and a variety of great team-building activities. They will be hands-on with younger campers, and work closely with counselors within a supervised program. Participants will build their own resumes with real life experiences and gain first-hand knowledge working with children, earn community service hours, and help make a difference for themselves and other campers.
LIT sessions are 5 days – but campers in this age group will benefit from multiple weeks.
