Where Kids Find Their Journeys Through Fun!
Thank you for your interest in Camp Shai Summer Programs!
JCC Camp Shai is Denver’s premier Jewish Day Camp serving children entering grades K – 6. Individuals of all backgrounds, faiths, and families are welcome. At Camp Shai, we offer a little something for everyone with a variety of engaging and fun activities; from sports to art to science, our campers are building their skill sets while enjoying everything that makes camp so special.
It’s our mission to create just the right environment for campers to build their confidence, challenge themselves to try new things, and make meaningful connections with peers and staff. At Camp Shai, we frame everything we do through the universal Jewish values (or Middot) of kindness (chesed), respect (kavod), community (kehillah), and good sportsmanship & attitude (ruach).
At Camp Shai, there is intention behind every program and activity we organize – we work to ensure that all campers leave feeling engaged, confident, and standing a little taller. Studies by the American Camping Association report day camp campers learn and grow in ways that impact them for the rest of their lives. These areas of growth include:
- Demonstrating increased self-esteem and a higher emotional intelligence
- Learning new skills and sharpening existing ones
- Developing social skills that help campers make friends and lasting connections with others
- Becoming more adventurous and willing to try new things outside of their comfort zones
