Camp Adventures + Friends Await!

School's done – it's time for fun!

At the JCC we believe camp must be boundless freedom from the everyday where kids can safely explore new experiences, stoke a sense of adventure and make life-lasting friendships. 

Camp Seneca Lake is a premier Jewish overnight camp, located in the gorgeous Finger Lakes and Summer Day at the J is a classic day camp. See below for more details for both camps.

Spend your summer days with us!

Grades K–6
New for Grades 7-8: Leaders in Training

Located on our main campus, we welcome all campers into a safe community of respect and inclusion where each child is encouraged to shine. 

The days will be filled with arts + crafts, low ropes adventures, drama, nature + hiking, athletics, music, swimming, and playground time.

With acres to explore, multiple pools and a huge gymnasium, fun is always close at hand.
