2022 Camp Calendar v3.jpg



When is JCC Summer Camp?

We offer 10 weeks of fun for kids grades K – 6 (plus additional programs for older kids):  our 2022 camp season runs from June 20th through August 12th.  Additionally, we offer a Theatre/Sports Pre-camp the week of June 13th and an Invention Post-Camp the week of August 15.


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.


What programs are available for 5th – 8th graders in 2022?

In an effort to stay safe during this pandemic, we will only be taking campers off site for a one-week travel experience this summer for 6th - 8th graders*. However, we are excited to offer our new and improved Leadership Development program for incoming 7th and 8th graders and our 5th and 6th graders will again have an opportunity to learn Woodworking through Maplewoodshop. View our brochure for more details.


*Note: Travel Camp Trip will have a cost of $700 and will only be held if a minimum # of campers register. 


What about overnights?

We will not be hosting overnights in 2022, but will have a late-stay for every age group.  This will include a late swim, special snacks, and age-appropriate fun-filled activities.


Do I need to pack lunch/snacks?

Campers provide their own dairy/vegetarian lunch.  JCC Summer Camp will provide an afternoon snack each day.  Snacks may include fruit, 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:

Early Bird (available for JCC members until 2/28): $300
JCC Member $350
Regular $425
Travel Camp Trip: $700


Transportation (from and to JCC): $75 (includes Free Before-Care)
After-Care: $50
Both Transportation and After-Care: $100


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 until April 15, 2022. 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 $25 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.
