When is JCC Summer Camp?
We offer 8 weeks of fun for kids grades K – 8: our 2023 camp season runs from June 19th through August 11th. Additionally, we offer an Invention Pre-Camp the week of June 12th and a special Post-Camp the week of August 14th for K-5th graders.
Where is camp?
Camp is located at Green Hills Swim Club—2055 Fishing Creek Valley Road, Harrisburg
How do campers get to camp?
This summer, families have two choices regarding transportation. They can either drive their campers directly to and from Green Hills or they can pay an additional fee for bus transportation from the JCC to Green Hills and back.
What is the schedule of a typical camp day?
Our typical camp day runs from 9am-4pm. We offer Before Care at the Harrisburg JCC from 8am-9am if families opt for transportation. For an additional charge, After Care is available from 4pm-6pm.
Each day is different (an adventure!) and consists of time for children to play, build friendships, and learn. See our brochure for a sample schedule.
*Note: Travel Camp Trip will have a cost of $825 and will only be held if a minimum # of campers register.
What about overnights?
In lieu of overnights, we have opted to take our campers on full-camp field trip adventures in 2023.
Do I need to pack lunch/snacks?
Campers provide their own lunch. JCC Summer Camp will provide an afternoon snack each day. Snacks may include pretzels, graham crackers, popsicles, and ice cream. If your child has any dietary restrictions, we are happy to work with you to provide safe snacks.
What are the fees to attend camp?
Our fee schedule, detailed above in our brochure, is as follows - all prices are weekly:
*A $250 deposit is due for all campers within one week of registration

What is your refund policy? What if my family or camper needs to quarantine?
In an effort to be as supportive as possible to our families, your deposit will be refundable (less $50 for processing) until April 15, 2023. After April 15, your deposit is non-refundable, though camp fees will be refunded should you need to cancel. Any changes to a camper’s schedule after May 13 will incur a $40 administrative fee per instance of changes.
If the JCC Summer Camp needs to close, full refunds will be issued to affected families.
We will work with families that need to reschedule their camp experience due to COVID-19 quarantine on a case-by-case basis.
