Spaces & Places
Albert & Ann Deshur JCC Rainbow Day Camp’s 110-acre facility in Fredonia allows children to experience and embrace the outdoors. In addition, camp provides plenty of tented areas for shade throughout the program day. Pre-planned rainy day schedules and hot day schedules take advantage of indoor space. No matter the weather, every day is a blast. This summer, our campsite will be divided into 8 unique and separate campsites. Scroll down to view our updated campsite map.
The main entrance to camp has moved to Chortek Way, a road that runs along the southern edge of camp and further away from our primary activity spaces. Camp buses and all visitors (including parents) are directed to turn left on this newer road that intersects with Trails End Road when arriving at camp. The original road is now used only for foot traffic and golf cart rides.
Round-trip transportation is provided from the JCC in Whitefish Bay, the Hy & Richard Smith JCC Water Park in Mequon, and a bus stop in Grafton.
Creating a comfortable and safe aquatics program is one of our most important goals.
POOL: The Daniel M. Soref Aquatic Center is accessible for campers of all abilities. This newly reimagined facility incorporates a shallow area, deep end, and splash pad with adjacent locker rooms.
AGAM: The Agam is a spring-fed pond that provides campers with boating and small craft experiences as well as an inflatable obstacle course and slide.

Dinkin Family Activity Village features four unique buildings. Each building is home to a different specialized activity: model trains, woodworking, music, dance, or even Legos.
Grandma’s Storybook Garden is a beautiful sitting area found in the middle of camp. Each day, our youngest campers enjoy a little quiet time for stories.
Judaic Playground is perfect for children to play. The transverse wall, swings, slides, and monkey bars are just what kids love. Plus, the Judaic learning elements provide an informal education regarding Judaism.
Fishing is found on the north side of camp. This half-acre pond is home to many bass, perch, and bluegill. Campers are able to learn basic fishing techniques and practice without having to leave camp.
