Camp JCC Winter Camp wraps with happy campers

by | Jan 19, 2023 | Other News

Camp JCC wrapped up a successful Winter Break Camp with diverse days, fun, and plenty of good spirit. Activities included gym games, free swim, winter crafts, indoor gaga, Israeli culture with the community ShinShiniot, Alma Ben Chorin and Aya Sever, and a daily “camper’s choice” elective.

Special activities, which were facilitated by beloved summer camp counselors enjoying their winter breaks by working at the JCC, included roasting marshmallows and s’mores, hot chocolate, an epic “snowball fight” against the counselors, and a talent show. The first week of Winter Break Camp coincided with Hanukkah and each day ended with candle lighting, Hanukkah songs, and chocolate gelt.

After providing limited service in recent years due to COVID-19, Camp JCC Winter Break Camp was again open and available to everyone in the community. Campers attended Virginia Beach Public Schools, Norfolk Public Schools, Chesapeake Public Schools, Strelitz International Academy, and other private schools. Families could select a package that matched their district calendar or individual days that fit their schedules.

Building off the success of Winter Break Camp, Spring Break Camp will be offered April 10–14, 2023. Information, pricing, and registration may be found at
