J Day Camps

Your kids deserve a fun (and safe) summer! Every child is welcome at the J, and our camps feature the activities kids love most – like swimming, sports, gymnastics and arts. We offer one camp per age group at each location and many activities and focuses from which your child can choose. Older campers can choose their focuses or activities each week. Focuses and activities include sports, gymnastics, arts, science, cooking, swimming, traditional camp activities and more. One camp community provides a safe space to be a kid and do kid things alongside kind, caring and safety-conscious counselors.

In 2021, J Day Camps utilized ACA, CDC and other professional guidelines to provide a safe experience where kids were able to play with one another and connect in a way that had been missing for months – all while following COVID-19 safety protocols. As a result, campers grew as individuals as they camped safely with us.

For details about all of our camps and to register, please visit jccstl.org/daycamps.

J Day Camps are held on two campuses: Camp Creve Coeur and Camp Chesterfield, from June 6 - August 19.
