Take complete advantage of the fantastic JCC facilities including… Friedenberg Olympic sized pool, the 500-seat David & Dorothea Garfield Theatre, the Gotthelf Dance Studio, the Royston Science Lab, the newly renovated, lush Edgar Berner Family Ball Fields, Albert A. Hutler Tennis Courts, and so much more.

We have engaging, educational, and flat-out fun activities for every child: arts and crafts, ceramics, Zumba dance, a “School of Rock,” fencing, leadership training, music, swimming lessons, theatre programs, sports of all kinds, and more.

5. Swimming Lessons and Recreation

Summertime and the swimming is easy! And kids swim every day! The Friedenberg Olympic-sized pool is kept at an even 81 degrees, has a full deck, a large wading pool, and a huge jacuzzi. Best of all, American Red Cross certified instructors provide swim lessons for children 4 yrs.–3rd grade.

6. Judaica Specialists

Camp Jaycee is fortunate to have three Shlichim (counselors) from Israel that enrich camp by sharing Jewish customs, dancing, music, Hebrew, and more. Every week concludes with a camp-wide Shabbat celebration.

7. Safety First, and Always

Our staff is not only trained in delivering fun, engaging, and edifying activities to kids of all ages; they’re also safety experts! CPR trained life guards and camp administrative staff, along with our low staff-to-camper ratio, ensure Camp Jaycee is enjoyable and safe. Also, the JCC is located next door to the Northern Division of the San Diego Police and Fire Department.

8. Trained, Professional People

When it comes to the staff, no other camp comes close to Camp Jaycee. Our highly qualified staff are trained in group dynamics, creative programming, first aid, and more. Hands-on attention is guaranteed as Camp Jaycee has one of the best camper-to-staff ratios in San Diego.

9. Accredited: We Take Child Development Seriously

Camp Jaycee is a place that furthers child development, where your child’s mind will be as busy as his or her body! Camp Jaycee earned a 100% score on the American Camping Association accreditation, which recognizes program quality, as well as health and safety.
