At the Day Camp @ the JCC, our goal is for each of our campers to learn new skills and play new sports. We foster a positive sense of self, and boost campers’ confidence in their athletic abilities. Each sport is taught with realistic and age-appropriate expectations, with coaches and counselors demonstrating respectful behavior, fair play, and sportsmanship. We focus on both the body and mind: the development of fine and cognitive motor skills and hand-eye coordination as well as the rules and strategy of each sport.
All of our campers participate in sports instruction multiple times a week. The sports coaches focus on skill development and a better understanding of the rules of each sport. The curriculum is designed specifically for each age group, and enables the campers to learn and grow throughout the summer. The 3- and 4-year-old campers participate in sports in the JCC gym with the famed JCC coaches. The 5- and 6-year-old campers have sports daily in Riverside Park as well as sports electives in the gym. Our coaches, who are members of JCC Manhattan’s year-round athletic staff, pay individual attention to campers’ growth, successes, and hurdles as they develop throughout the summer.
OUR SPORTS INCLUDE:
Relay Races + Camp Games
