Camps for Creative Kids

K5 – 6th grade

Connect with creative expression on the Karl Community Campus in Whitefish Bay.

Creating a camp community

Taking a community building approach to specialty day camps, all campers begin each day with Morning Assembly before each group heads off to dive deeper into their selected program. On Friday afternoons, the whole camp community gathers to wrap up the week and enjoy a fun Shabbat celebration just prior to the end of the regular camp day.

Typical camp day 9:00 AM – 4:00 PM
All JCC day camps offer extended care to fit the schedules of busy families.
Before Care 7:00-9:00 AM – $7/day
After Care 4:00-6:00 PM (5:30 Fridays) – $7/day
$35/week for unlimited Before & After Care
