Camp JCC is the place to be for a SUPER summer this year! When it comes to summer camps, kids want to be active and engaged, and most of all, to have fun. Parents want a place where their kids will be safe and happily occupied, and if it’s convenient, it’s even better! The Calgary Jewish Community Centre offers eight weeks of summer camps for kids ages 3 – 11, but you don’t have to be Jewish to attend Camp JCC – it is open to everyone! With a variety of themes and camps that build a wide range of skills, kids can try something new and find their niche.
The Calgary JCC has been delivering high-quality camps, providing a safe and fun environment for your kids, for over 30 years. With expanded program offerings, these camps appeal to a wide range of kids, giving them lots of opportunities for fun, including a chance to swim in the indoor pool throughout the week.
The camp staff are well-trained and enthusiastic and they will meet regularly to stay up-to-date on all COVID-19 policies and procedures and ensure that the best practices are in place for each week of camp. All mandated guidelines set out by the Minister of Child and Family Services, along with Alberta Health Services, will be strictly followed by the Camp JCC staff.
Summer Camp Themes
Junior Camps: Children as young as age 3 can enjoy a week at Camp JCC, with half-day options, while 4-year-olds will be excited for their full days. These children can choose from camp themes like Diggin’ for Dinos, Tropical Beach Bash, Animal Planet, and more. Get ready for a week of exploration and discovery!

General Camps: Kids from kindergarten to grade six can attend an all-day general camp, for a blended camp experience. These children get involved in a diverse range of activities including arts, crafts, dance, and more, with each week focussing on a weekly highlight to bring a new flavour of camp to the table. Campers also get to swim throughout the week.
Sports Camps: For the kids in grades one to six that can’t stop moving, take a look at the sports camps! These camps blend traditional ball sports with modern athletics to help keep your children active and engaged and campers will also swim throughout the week.
Specialized Camps: If your kids want to focus on specific skills, they’ll love the specialized camps. Children ages 4 – 10 can spend all day in a bike camp and kids ages 4 – 11 can choose a half-day camp like engineering, robotics, building, pottery, or dance. If you have a teen from age 13 – 15, Camp JCC also offers a Counsellor In Training Program, helping teens to become future leaders by developing self-esteem, peer relations, interpersonal skills, and leadership techniques.
Once you choose the best camp for your child, the hard part is over! Camp JCC also offers a lunch option, for a fee, so you don’t have to worry about packing lunches this summer, as well as pre- and post-care if you need it. Registration opens on April 1, 2021, and you’ll receive 5% off general and sports camps when you register in April.
With crafts, games, swimming, and more, your kids will love Camp JCC. Register today for Calgary JCC Summer Camps and choose a super summer!
