Yes. Find AM and PM Care in our Camp Finder using the “Add On” theme.

What does my camper need to bring with them each day?

Campers should bring their own snacks and lunch, including water bottles.

What’s a camp day at the J like?

There’s no such thing as a typical day at camp at the JCCSF, but there are a few things you can count on. From the moment you drop your camper off to the moment they begrudgingly climb back into the car to go home at the end of the day, we make sure a good (and safe!) time is had by all.

Campers start their day with get-to-know-you games and learn what’s in store for their day. After the ice is broken, the fun really starts to heat up. Mornings are spent taking part in projects and activities related to each camper’s chosen program like musical theater, art, STEAM or sports.

As lunchtime approaches, a quick stretch or outdoor time may be in order to help get the wiggles out before it’s time to nosh. Afternoons are filled with more specialty activities with plenty of fresh air, trips into nature, games and snacks sprinkled throughout for good measure.

When the day nears its end, we wrap up, clean up, pack up and head down to drive through where campers are picked up, excited to tell you about all the fun they had and the friends they made that day. Then we do it all again the next day!
