JCC’s Camp Centerland at the Irving M. Shuman Campgrounds

The JCC's Camp Centerland provides a stimulating and nurturing environment based on Jewish values for kids of all faiths

Camp Centerland’s philosophy is rooted in the belief that teaching and demonstrating the Jewish values of Chesed (kindness), Kehillah (community) and Tikkun Olam (healing the world) is as important as splashing in the swimming pool, enjoying a popsicle on Wednesday, or singing favorite camp songs. Limud is the Hebrew word for learning, which is at the heart of everything we do. Limud (learning) is the foundation of our diverse camp community and it enables everyone to gain a deeper sense of identity and belonging.

*We welcome transgender, intersex, non-binary and gender-non conforming campers
