J-Cation Camps

When schools are closed for holidays and vacations, come and fill the days with our all new J-Cation camps!

In the true spirit of Camp Sisol, we are bringing together the traditional Gesher vacation camps, the TYKEs programs and the Youth Fitness and Sports programs for a day of fun and excitement! Choose from the traditional track (field trips, crafts, interest based activities, etc.), a day of drama, or a day of sports and fitness! All participants will enjoy lunch and an afternoon activity together!

2017-2018 J-Cation Camps

January 15 Martin Luther King, Jr. Day JCation Camp

Traditional Track: Join us for a morning of sledding and playing outside at Markus Park/Camp Sisol! In the afternoon, we will return to the JCC for an afternoon of choices including free swim, Playgym, crafts, sports and more!

TYKEs Track: Go behind the scenes at TYKEs! Kids will enjoy a very hands-on day as they learn all about theatre tech – how lighting and sound boards operate in the theater’s upstairs control booth and how our backstage “fly” mechanism lifts giant set pieces in the air. We’ll demonstrate the way various lighting instruments and microphones work, and get a new perspective on theater from backstage, the dressing rooms and our costume and props shop too! You’ll even see how we built our Fly Guy set and check out the props we use during the show.
