SUMMER CAMPS

SUMMER 2020 UPDATE

As we continue to navigate our new normal Sid Jacobson JCC sees a light around the corner with the announcement that our summer camps will be opening. What a wonderful way to welcome the summer season and bring a feeling of routine back to our lives.

While certain aspects will, of course, be different from years past so that we can maintain a safe experience for campers and staff, what will remain is the spirit of what camp truly means – community, values, and camaraderie. We are excited to welcome back our Camp Jacobson, Kehilla Experience, and Summer Streeters campers and make 2020 a summer to remember!
