Camp Shai Morning Circle

Traditional Day Camp

JCC Camp Shai offers a full-day, traditional camp experience for campers entering grades K – 6. Activities at Camp Shai are designed to challenge campers and help them grow in a safe, supportive environment. Each day at camp offers countless opportunities to make friends and memories while having a BLAST!   


FIRST YEAR (Kindergarten)

Rishonim is designed to meet the needs of children in transition from preschool to Kindergarten. For most of these campers, it will be their first camp experience and we want to make sure they leave each day with more excitement than the previous one. Camp Shai campers are gently introduced to all of the fun and engaging camp activities as older campers with a built-in recharge time each day.


FRIENDS (Grade 1)

Back for another awesome summer, Chaverim is a great chance to get back into the groove of the camp lifestyle and continue to build those friendships from previous summers. Chaverim campers’ days are filled with the traditional camp activities including sports, arts & crafts, music, Teva (Nature and Science) and once a week we will head to the JCC pool for free swim!


SCOUTS (Grade 2)

Keep a look out, here comes Tsofim! These go-getters are ready for all of the adventure we can pack into a day at Camp Shai including sports, games, music, arts, and swimming! Tsofim will take a deep dive into our Camp Shai Middot (Values) and truly learn what it means to be a Mensch (an upstanding person).


Heroes (Grades 3 – 4)

Giborim campers get to experience the full magic of summer camp and spend their days creating art, playing sports, making music, exploring Teva, and once a week we will head to the JCC pool for free swim. Giborim is a high energy group with many opprtunites for campers to let their true selves shine!


BUILDERS (Grades 5 – 6)

Camp Shai becomes a place of solified friendships for our Bonim campers! The group will be able to experience all the amazing activities of Camp Shai like Sports, Arts & Crafts, and Teva (nature and science). To keep their curious minds engaged, our staff are trained to cater these activities to Bonim’s abilities.

“I just wanted to tell you how much my camper (rising 2nd grader) is LOVING Camp Shai and thank you for running such an amazing program! You guys are doing a great job! The counselors are all super sweet - so happy and excited to greet the kids at the beginning of the day, and at drop off they are equally excited about seeing them the next day.”
