It is hard to believe that in just a few short months Camp Centerland will open for our 62nd summer. Each year, campers join us to enjoy an extraordinary experience of fun, friendship and learning.
Very often parents ask us why camp? Camp affords children the opportunity to develop new skills, create friendships and spend their summer outdoors. Campers become more independent, self- confident and gain a deeper appreciation and understanding of themselves and the world around them. Whether it is on a nature walk, climbing or zipping at the Adventure Course, swimming or creating something magical at Omanut (Arts and Crafts) Centerland has and will always offer our campers an incredible summer, Inside and Out.
We have several new things to celebrate this summer. This summer our Discovery Travel campers will be traveling to Philadelphia, tripping to Camp Surprise Lake and camping in Watkins Glen. Our Atid campers will visit Syracuse for their O.F.F. (Overnight, Field trip, and Fun) and a day trip to Camp Seneca Lake in Rochester for our Yehuda campers is planned.
This summer we are creating a new swim program designed specifically for children attending Camp Centerland, we are excited to embark on this new venture. We have new lunch options available; I encourage you to visit our food and menu page on the website. And don't forget to visit our Specialty Camp page for a look at all the amazing offerings coming to the JCC.
No one should miss out on a Camp Centerland experience due to inability to pay the camp fees. Please contact the camp office for more information about a confidential fee assistance application at 204-2079
