Are you ready for summer? Is your child ready for fun and friendships? (We are!) Then J Day Camps are the place for your family. Every child is welcome at the J, and our camps feature the activities kids love most - like swimming, sports, gymnastics and arts. Campers in 3rd-6th grades even get to choose most of their daily activities.
In 2020, J 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 they 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.
Beginning June 7, we are thrilled to offer 11 weeks of camp in 2021. We are planning as if summer will bring a return to normalcy to the world. We are also keenly aware of how unpredictable the situation remains. Therefore, we are simultaneously planning for an appropriately distanced summer with a COVID-19 safety plan in place.
Come for one week, multiple weeks or all summer! The J's caring, well-trained staff is led by full-time, year-round camp professionals who guide and train our summer team through 30+ hours of training on how to "think like a parent, act like a friend."
J Day Camps are held on two campuses: Camp Creve Coeur and Camp Chesterfield, from June 7 - August 20.
