All the Colors of Camp Shai 

By now, you may have heard of a special, magical place called JCC Camp Shai. Each summer, the JCC transforms into a hub for learning, growth, and unbridled fun for children grades k-6, as well our highly skilled staff.  

Each day at Camp Shai, campers experience the best that summer has to offer. With days jam packed with activities like arts and crafts, sports, Teva (nature and science exploration), music, water games, swimming, and so many other group activities, children with all interests will find something to engage in. Alongside the “common” camp activities, campers can also enjoy Chugim (free choice activities); think goofy things like Harry Potter wand making, capture the flag, and more! 

Of all the aspects that make Camp Shai unique, perhaps the most notable is the expansive offerings provided to our campers. Traditional camp encompasses Rishonim, Chaverim, Tsofim, Giborim, and Bonim, each aiming to cater a camp experience for specific age groups. Beyond traditional camp, families can enroll their camper in Sports Specialty camp, Shai Shuffle, ShaiVenture, STEAM Specialty Camps, or Shai Explorers. Choices are many, and you can’t go wrong.  

Studies show that summer camp has lasting effects on children’s lives, bolstering social-emotional learning and helping them to prepare for college, career, and beyond. Lessons that campers learn during their summers at camp stick with through years of growth and change – as do the friendships and memories made at summer camp. Camp Shai staff know this in their hearts and are rock stars at creating the most enriching camp experience possible.  

Our daydreams are filled with thoughts of Camp Shai – we can’t wait to welcome our campers back in a few short months!
