Specialty & Choice Options

During the registration process, campers have two options for their afternoon activities.

1. Daily Chugim
Campers registered for the “Traditional Rainbow Day Camp” option have the opportunity to select 2 Chugim (free choice) activities each day. Chugim provide campers with the ability to truly create the individualized camp experience that they want and to try lots of new things throughout their week.

2. Specialty Programs

When you register your camper for one of our specialty programs (offered on a weekly basis), they continue to spend the morning with their age group peers, then their afternoon activity block is spent focusing on a particular area of interest.

Program Descriptions

Shiluv (integration) Program

We want every camper to have a summer that fits their personal needs and abilities. The integrated Shiluv programs allow campers of differing abilities to be mainstreamed with their peers while receiving individualized support from professionally trained staff. This program is open to campers with physical, developmental, emotional, behavioral, and language support needs. A parent interview is required prior to the start of the registration process for each child. To begin the conversation, call JCC Rainbow Day Camp at 414-967-8248.
