JCDS is Ready for Summer! For over 50 years JCDS has provided fun, high quality, and engaging summer programs to campers on the Southside. JCDS Camps run daily from 9:00-3:00 p.m, and we offer extended hours from 7:30-6:00 p.m. to all ages. Are you Ready for Summer?
Each week campers can choose either our Summer Sharks recreational program or an exciting Specialty camp. Summer Sharks campers will spend time in the pool, gym, game room, art room, outdoors and more. They even take the bus on a weekly field trip to a fun local destination! Campers in specialty camps still get to enjoy the daily pool and recreation time, but take a deeper dive into a topic of their choosing. Specialty camps are led by JCDS teachers, local educators or coaches and bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise in their respective area. Topics range from art to dance, music to coding, volleyball to archery. There’s something for everyone!
Our dynamic group of counselors can’t wait to meet your campers this summer! The camp leadership team spends countless hours searching for, selecting and training the best group of counselors for our program. All staff receive training in emergency procedures, working with young people, handling conflict, and may receive (or have) training in First Aid/CPR. We also employ a team of Red Cross certified lifeguards to supervise our aquatic facilities.
Choosing the right summer program for your child is one of the most important decisions a parent can make each year. We are confident our diverse offerings & camper-focused program will provide your child with a memorable summer experience. Don’t just take our word for it, here’s what a parent had to say:
“Thank you for providing a fun, safe, and loving environment where my child can have fun and I don't have to worry about who or what he is being exposed to. I know I can count on JCDS to give my child a fun, wholesome summer experience.”
