We Make Camp Fun & Easy!

Mix and match camp programs, sign up for as many different camps and weeks as you wish. Different experiences are provided on a weekly/bi-weekly basis to ensure your child has the opportunity to experience everything Camp JCC has to offer! Specialty camp programs include a variety of sports, STEM and creative art options.


Whether your camper chooses a Specialty Camp or Traditional Camp, everyone will attend Camp JCC from 8:00-3:00pm daily! Available for students grades 1-8 (ages 6-13). All activities will take place on the Shaw JCC of Akron’s vast campus! Drop-off begins at 8:00am - All campers should arrive by 9:00am. Pick up begins at 2:50pm - All campers should be picked up by 3:05pm.

This summer, in order to keep everyone involved in Camp JCC and our families safe, we are going to REQUIRE that each child BRINGS a mask that they can leave at Camp.


We are not going to require campers to wear masks regularly because they will be outside; however, there will be some instances where masks will have to be worn by campers. For example:

  • Shabbat celebrations on Fridays when the entire camp is together and 6ft social distancing may not be maintained.
  • If your camper is registered for certain Specialty Camps, that will be held inside of the JCC building, masks are mandatory.


The entire Camp JCC Staff will be masked at all times when inside of the building and the pavilion.


*We will have extra, individually wrapped, disposable masks for campers that have forgotten a mask.


Recognizing the need to service all members of the entire community regardless of their ability to pay the full cost of programs or membership, the Shaw JCC of Akron offers financial assistance to those experiencing financial hardships. It is our sincere hope that families and individuals will never be denied participation in JCC programs because of financial reasons. We understand that asking for assistance may be difficult; therefore, we strive to make the process easy, confidential and as fair as possible. Please click HERE for the Financial Assistance Form.
