Summer Camp

Bernie Camp creates a fun and welcoming community fostering a deep sense of belonging and connection with Jewish values in every camper and staff member.

At Bernie camp, we provide a nurturing, enriched day camp experience that celebrates the vitality of childhood. Here, every camper and staff member feels a deep sense of belonging to our community and our Jewish values. Campers build community and personal integrity through group activities, challenges, sports, arts, Jewish identity, and cultural exposure. Bernie camp is a revolving door, where campers form meaningful, lifelong connections; carry the values of camp home with them; return to give back to camp, and develop professionally as young adults. Join our Bernie Camp community for an unforgettable camp experience. Bernie Camp is for children entering 1-10 grade, with different group options depending on grade. 

This year's camp theme is Pelé – Wonder!

Summer 2022 is a time of Pelé– wonder. This year we are taking the time to look at the world through eyes of wonder. Together we will discover the natural wonders around us, create wonderful works of art, and dream and wonder about the future.


For summer 2022 we will continue to take precautions to keep everyone healthy and safe. Groups sizes will be limited by health department guidelines. Each Bernie Camp group will have a designated den on the JCC campus. Campers and staff will wear masks at all times, except to eat. Campers will eat lunch outdoors.
