Berkeley Summer Camp

Program Overview

JCC Summer Camp offers an intimate day camp experience where campers can discover new interests, test personal limits, and most importantly, have fun. In this exciting and safe environment, campers will celebrate Jewish traditions, make new friends, and develop meaningful relationships with their counselors. We aim to give campers a sense of Judaism in a whole new way as they experience and pursue the value of making the world a better place through service projects, song, art, dance, and drama.

Stay tuned for information about 2023 Summer Camp including schedule & fees, financial aid, applications, and FAQ’s!

In Your Words

“This is honestly the best camp we’ve sent our kids to. My wife is Jewish and has hugely positive memories of her own JCC camps where she grew up, and the report from my kids match those memories. From the clear kindness of the counselors, the excellently done accommodations for my autistic child and pandemic in general, we’re so happy with our experience. As a non-Jew myself, I was so impressed at how well the focus was placed on the ethical components of Jewish life, and the fact that I always felt informed but not excluded. We will certainly be back.”

“The JCC East Bay knocked it out of the park with camp! The staff and counselors prioritized safety while providing my daughters with such fun, creative, and thoughtful programming. Can we do camp all year round?”

“During the extraordinarily difficult times of the pandemic, the JCC didn't just provide desperately needed child care support for parents, but also a safe, enriching, care-free, ruach-filled experience for the kids - a real blessing for the community these days.”

“JCC camp not only gave our energetic 7 year old a safe place to be during Covid times, it offered her new friendships, a deep sense of community, and a connection to Jewish values through discussion, song, and exploration. We are so very grateful for the gift of this camp.”
