Summer Camp

Bernie Camp is a place where campers will learn, grow, and create life-long friendships while having fun and participating in a variety of engaging activities. Campers experience swimming, athletics, arts & crafts, and field trips, while gaining invaluable 21st century skills that will help them interact with the world around them now and in the future. Bernie Camp creates a tight-knit community of campers, staff members, and families and is rooted in the Jewish values of Kavod (Respect), Kehilah (Community), Chesed (Kindness), and B’Tzelem Elohim (Value of Each Individual). Join our Bernie Camp community for an unforgettable summer experience! Bernie Camp is for children entering 1-10 grade with different group options depending on grade.

This Year's Camp Theme Is L’Dor V’Dor!

L’Dor V’Dor means “from generation to generation.” Bernie camp has been a summer staple at the JCC for decades and has impacted the lives of thousands of campers. Summer of 2019 we’ll be focusing on the traditions that have made Bernie Camp so special, and introducing new aspects to pass along to future generations. We hope you’ll join us for another incredible summer of memories!
