extended

Why should summer only last eight weeks? Summer Extended* offers options for the week before and the two weeks after the Camp Olami season. Art, sports, engineering… Even Quidditch, there is certainly something for everyone!

*Several of the programs below are housed on the Barry Family Campus but are run by organizations outside the JCC and Camp Olami. You’ll see “Vendor Camp” beneath the registration link for each of these awesome partners. Vendor Camps rum by Skyhawks Multi Sport Camp, Snapology, ARTrageous, and 43 Hoops.
