J Camps

J Camps is the Evelyn Rubenstein JCC’s day camp program for children in preschool through grade 9 with options for art, culinary, dance, gymnastics, sports, tennis, theatre and so much more! We provide a Jewish summer camp that supports every camper’s social emotional growth as they form friendships, gain independence, build confidence and find joy in each day through a Jewish lens!

What’s New for Summer 2024?

We would like to inform you about a change to our camp schedule. As you may have heard, HISD will start the 2024-2025 school year between August 12 and August 14. This schedule change unfortunately does not allow us to offer camp in week 11. You will see this reflected when registering for J Camps. Please also note that we are considering some potential daily camp options in week 11 if the start date is August 14.
