JCC summer camp fun is just around the corner

Go Back


There’s plenty of summer camp fun and adventure for children and teens to experience at the Sam Pomeranz Jewish Community Center of Syracuse this year! The JCC’s Camp Joe & Lynne Romano summer day camp will run weekdays for eight weeks from July 1 through August 23. There will be plenty of non-stop excitement, fun and adventure for everyone to experience.

Each week campers will have a blast making new friends and participating in enriching activities. There’s nothing boring about summer camp at the JCC as campers go swimming and are kept active every day.

Camp enrollment is broken out into three different age groups. The early childhood camp is for children 6-weeks old through entering kindergarten, school-age camp is open to children entering grades 1–6 and the SyraCruisin’ teen travel camp is for young teens entering grades 7–10.

Each camp day begins and ends at the JCC on 5655 Thompson Rd. in DeWitt. Depending on the camp, some campers may go off-site for scheduled field trips and specialty camp activities. Early and late care options are available for all campers.

The JCC’s more than 30 Specialty Camps for school-age children allow kids to explore a specific interest area for an entire week. In addition to staples such as gymnastics, art, rocketry and fishing, this year’s new Specialty Camps such as Bricks 4 Kidz Coding and Video Game Design and Bricks 4 Kidz Game Over Jr. Engineers are sure to be instant hits.

Young teens ages 14 and 15 looking to take on some responsibility should check out the Camp Aide and Counselor in Training (CIT) programs. They offer many opportunities to hone teamwork and leadership skills.

Camp Romano registration is currently in full swing. Register your child anytime right up until the start of camp on July 1 and throughout the summer prior to the start of each camp session. But don’t delay. Spots go quickly and some school-age specialty camp sessions closeout early. Except for the Camp Aide and Counselor in Training teen programs, current JCC membership is not necessary for Camp Romano registration. However, JCC members receive discounted camp rates. A discount for siblings is also available.
