Staffing: Campers are under the direct supervision of a trained staff member at all times. All Camp JCC staff is certified in CPR/AED and First Aid. We exceed the staffing standard set by the ODJFS (Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services) with the 1:10 Counselor/Camper Ratio.
Groups: Campers are divided into small groups by age and each group is staffed accordingly. They travel with their group throughout the day to their assigned activities. All campers socialize together regardless of age during lunch time, playground time, and free swim.
NEW! Logan Friday Afternoons: Every Friday morning will be spent at our JCC Main Campus with activities that will focus on different Jewish values and Shabbat. After lunch, we will bus all campers to our Logan Campus (weather permitting) for an afternoon of fun in the sun! We will stay at Logan for two hours and then campers will be bussed back for regular pick-up and aftercare procedures. Our Logan Campus is conveniently located less than three miles from our Main Campus at 3425 Logan Way, Youngstown, Ohio 44505
NEW! Theme Weeks and Wednesdays: This year the daily activities of our traditional day camp weeks will be centered around different themes. Every Wednesday is also either a theme day or field trip that will relate to our weekly day camp theme! All campers, with the exception of those registered in certain specialty camps, will have the chance to participate. Admission prices to field trips are included in your camp fees so there is no additional cost associated with field trip weeks.
Field Trips include: Skate Zone, Living Treasures and more*
*Field trip locations are subject to change due to availability and weather.
