What Makes J at School Adventure Camp Unique?

Activities and Theme Weeks

Beach days, sports & games, swimming, arts & crafts, arts performances, field trips, and neighborhood adventures are just a few Adventure Camp highlights. Every week has a theme that makes our educational curriculum exciting.

Character Counts

Each week, we highlight an important character trait. Through specific games, counselor instruction, and demonstrations, we support your camper from the inside out.

Parent-Staff Communication

It’s a partnership from the moment you first contact our team. Communication is critical to building relationships and to the success of our program. Weekly newsletters, proactive contact with parents and an open phone line are part of our ongoing communication plan.

Convenient Hours

The camp day extends from 8:00am-4:00pm, with extended care hours from 4:00-6:00pm (Burr Elementary Only).
