This year’s theme is “Road Trip: Maine to Florida,” and campers will participate in arts and crafts, sports, games and cultural activities led by artist-in-residence Super Cooper. Campers, K-5th grade, will swim on all non-field trip days, and will need to bring a swimsuit and towel. All campers will need to bring a lunch each day, snacks will be provided. The J’s Annual Winter Camp provides a supportive environment for children to grow and have new experiences.
