Summer fun especially created for the youngest campers.


Campareenah is a summer program that draws on all of the important elements that make the JCC's Early Childhood Centers so well-respected and extends these wonderful features through the summer season.

  • Stellar professional staff comprised of early childhood educators and
    mature, experienced college students.



  • High staff to child ratios which promote quality programs in an extremely nurturing and safe environment.
  • Developmentally appropriate programs especially designed for young preschoolers including sports, crafts, games, skill building, storytelling,
    music and more.
  • Wacky Wednesday theme days with special activities and surprise guests ranging from animal exhibits to inflatables on Carnival Day and Water Festival.
  • Exciting field trips for Ready, Set, Kindergarten campers including Imagination Museum, Natures Art and Forest Park Zoo, to name a few.
  • At the Mandell JCC location, we offer the only preschool camp program with an indoor pool which allows daily swim lessons, regardless of weather conditions; and – the only local pool with a moveable floor to accommodate the youngest campers and all skill levels.
  • At the Mandell JCC location, we offer full use of the entire Mandell JCC facility, including the gymnasium.
  • At the Mandell JCC, we offer additional afternoon enrichment programs such as computer fun, pottery, sports and the indoor playscape for Ready, Set, Kindergarten campers.
