2020 Summer Programming

Join us this Summer!

We have created ways to engage with campers over the summer in meaningful and supportive ways and we want to bring some camp fun and sunshine to as many people as possible this summer.  We know how important camp is to your children and families, and the significant impact the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing has had on South Jersey.

We know that we made the right decision for our camp and community based on the size and scope of the JCC Camps at Medford, however we can bring smaller groups of participants out to camp this summer and maintain physical distancing, working within the New Jersey state guidelines to ensure camper and staff safety.  We are excited to share with you a few of the programs we have in the works!

To register, you must do so via the JCC Daxko registration system. The links to directly register can be found below. Registration is strictly on a first come, first served basis.

To receive the JCC member rate for these programs, you must be currently paying on an active JCC membership. If you have frozen, put your membership on hold or canceled due to Covid-19 you will be required to pay the guest rate. If you would like to reactivate your membership to receive the discounted member rate, please email Judy Muhlberg at [email protected]. Please note that pricing may be adjusted after registration based on your current membership status. Payment will be required in full at the time of registration.

One of the most asked questions is “When do parents get to come to camp?”  We finally have an answer…July 2020!  Sign your family up for a day at camp including favorite activities such as boating, archery, sledding slope, swim, splash park, gaga, and more!  A barbeque lunch, snacks, popsicles, and more are included.  If you are comfortable participating in activities with another family, sign up together for an extra special day.

Limited to 20 families per day, first come, first served.  Family Camp Days will only run with 10+ families registered per day.

Each day of family camp requires its own registration. There is no minimum or limit to the number of family camp days you can register for.
