JCC_CampShai

A day off of school just got a lot more fun.

School’s Out! Camps are scheduled around days that local schools are not in session. School’s Out! brings the magic of Camp Shai to the school year with fun and engaging programs for children of all backgrounds, beliefs, and abilities. By integrating our core Jewish values of kindness (chesed), respect (kavod), community (kehillah), and sportsmanship (ruach) into everything we do, children will gain resilience, confidence, and a sense of belonging.

Each day of School’s Out! Camp runs from 8:30 am – 3:30 pm. We offer both Sunrise Care and Sunset Care options for families that are in need of more time in the mornings or evenings.

Sunrise Care 7:30 am – 8:30 am $15/day
School’s Out! Program 8:30 am – 3:30 pm $90/day
Sunset Care 3:30pm – 4:30pm $15/day

School’s Out Camp FAQs

School’s Out! does not provide meals for campers but we do provide a small morning and afternoon snack. All food provided by the JCC will have a hechsher symbol on it.

In order to register your camper, families will need to utilize the CampInTouch system. To create a new account or log in to your existing account, please visit this link.

At this time, School’s Out! offers a sibling discount. If you enroll more than one of your children in our programs, we will knock off $10 of the regular camp price.

If your camper becomes ill or tests positive for COVID-19 and you need to cancel their registration, please reach out to campshai@jccdenver.org as soon as possible.

Cancellation requests received more than 48 hours in advance will result in a 100% refund of your enrollment. Cancellation requests received less than 48 hours in advance will result in a 50% refund of your enrollment.

The School’s Out! calendar is based on dates of closure for Denver Public Schools as well as Denver Jewish Day School.

As a state-licensed childcare program, there are several enrollment forms that are required for children to be in our care. All required enrollment forms are listed in your family’s CampInTouch account and must be completed before the program’s deadline. Campers cannot attend camp without completed forms. For assistance, please contact our registrar, Allison Marshall, at amarshall@jccdenver.org.

We use our CampInTouch system for various programs across the JCC that all utilize different timelines.

“I can’t tell you how much fun my girls had. They are consistently reporting Camp Shai as the “best part” of their winter break! Looking forward to seeing you soon.”
