Camps  / 

If you haven’t already begun your dip into the day camp waters, now’s the time to take the plunge before sessions fill up and you’re left high and dry. Neil Klatskin Day Camp (NKDC) at the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades has it all: a 21+ acre campus with three pools, a sprinkler park, a go cart track, full pool, sports facilities, a low ropes course with zip line, indoor rainy-day facilities, and all-inclusive perks, like lunch, snacks, towel service and camp swag. Oh and we have to mention that by signing your child up for camp at NKDC and becoming a member of the Kaplen JCC on the Palisades (new families can snag a special membership offer for $250 for the summer) your whole fam will be able to staycation all summer long with the center's amazing fitness facilities, programs, pool and cafe.


All NKDC campers enjoy the outdoors, learn new skills, make new friends and explore their personal interests. With dynamic, age-appropriate programming that includes sports, Red Cross instructional and recreational swim, Tae Kwon Do, basketball, Krav Maga, yoga, art, drama, music, Judaic programming, special events and much more, your camper will have an incredible summer to remember.

Younger campers (ages 3-5) are given special attention to their social growth, emotional development and physical needs in a nurturing, enthusiastic and structured environment. Preschool and Kindergarten campers have head counselors who are certified educators and are home-based in air-conditioned rooms, with most activities taking place outdoors (half-day, three-quarter day and full-day options available); School age campers get an opportunity to develop social skills, self-esteem, and sportsmanship and get to create their own schedules with all of their favorite activities. A hebrew immersion option is also offered which includes Counselors and Specialists from Israel. Campers with special needs have options as well.

Registration options include 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 or 8 weeks. Campers also have access to transportation and extended care. JCC membership is required for NKDC enrollment. 


Have a camper older than 3rd grade? Don’t worry, they can get in on the JCC action too. The JCC offers over a dozen amazing specialty camps – you can choose from hi-tech, science and sports, to arts, dance, drama and more – all with similar amenities to their day camp. PLUS, sign up for specialty camps by the end of the month and you can take advantage of early bird pricing. There’s no risk, you can change weeks, switch camps, or cancel with no penalty. What are you waiting for?

With less than 100 days before summer begins and better pricing than ever, now’s the time to take the plunge!
