The best way to wrap up summer.
August 9 – 11, 2024
Want to end your summer with a bang? Look no further than JCC Family Camp, a weekend of fun for the entire family. With activities and adventures planned throughout the days and nights of this all-ages weekend, we guarantee Ranch Camp’s Family Camp is a great way to end the season and gear up for another school year.
- Day-Only Option
Family Camp weekend is filled with activities and fun for everyone!
Families can expect to ride horses, play sports, swim, do a ropes course, meet our farm animals, and sing around the campfire while devouring some s’mores.
Activities are tiered out to accommodate different age groups. If your family wants to stick together during the day, plan on attended activities for your youngest child.
What’s the Schedule?
Families should plan to arrive Friday afternoon for the entire weekend, and 9 am Saturday morning for the Day-Only option. Friday night will begin with a dinner followed by Shabbat service and dance session, and then an adult evening mixer with babysitting available for children ages three and above.
Saturday morning will begin with breakfast, alternative morning Shabbat services, Family Camp Rodeo, adult trail rides, and a plethora of other activities to try in the afternoon. Dinner and a short Havdallah service will be followed by a camp-led bonfire, and close with an adult mixer and game night, with the option for babysitting children three and up.
Sunday begins with a short breakfast, some free-activity time, final rides, and a lunchtime wrap-u with grab-and-go picnic-style items to eat on-site or take for the drive home.
Are there events for adults?
We offer riding times specifically for adults that can be registered for in your application process. We’ve added a fee to hold registrants accountable and ensure proper attire. There will also be an adult mixer each night and open saloon on Saturday morning.
These camp cabins are perfect for large groups, as they contain about ten beds per cabin with four of those being twin mattresses designed for parents and caregivers. If you are a taller individual, consider bringing a mattress topper or alternate housing.
Cabins do not have in-unit bathrooms and will use shower house and bathroom amenities nearby.
Cabins may be booked privately or shared with multiple families.
A step up from our cabins are our community ten, 10’20’ container homes surrounded by a fire pit, which include a full/twin bunk bed setup and built-in bathroom—ideal for family of three or two small children.
These glamping cottages each contain one bedroom, one bathroom, and include a queen bed and a cot for the kids. Their proximity to other cottages provides a bit of distance and privacy.
These back-to-basics platform tents provide families with a rustic weekend. With a private, propane firepit, no electricity and a 100-yard walk to the closest restrooms, this is the most authentic weekend experience.
All meals, including snacks, are included in the registration cost.
Although we do our best to accommodate a variety of dietary restrictions, which are listed in the registration form, we encourage you to bring supplemental snacks, as we cannot cook individualized meals.
Being that JCC Ranch Camp’s Dining Hall is a supervised Kosher facility with kosher-certified foods, we ask that you do not bring outside food into the dining hall in order to maintain the space’s kashrut status.
This is a great option for families who want to get a taste of the weekend but cannot attend for the entirety of the experience. Adults cannot sign up for trail rides in this option, and there may be limited time for children to experience all of the program’s offerings.
This option includes Saturday lunch and dinner; programs begin at 9:00 am and end by 7:00 pm.
Registration is online and can be found in the link at the top of this page, as well as right here.
Registration is done through Jotform and therefore requires an active phone to complete the process. Please only register for the party you are attending with.
Payment in full is required to secure your space.
Refunds, Cancellations and Transfers
Accidents happen, we get it. That’s why we offer a fully refundable, 48-hour window after registration.
After the 48-hour window are the following options:
March 1 – April 15: 50% of your payment is refundable.
April 15 – May 15: 25% of your payment is refundable.
After May 15: Registration is no longer refundable.
Your registration is not transferable to other JCC or Ranch Camp programs.
