Every day in Camp Kef we participate in sports, arts and crafts, science, nature education, cooking, and Judaic enrichment. Each week campers explore Seattle with field trips that have included local parks, a Mariners game, the Museum of Flight, an Argosy cruise, Ride the Ducks, and much more.

Come spend the summer at the SJCC Sports Camp, back-to-back winner of the ParentMap Magazine Awards for Best Sports Camp in the Puget Sound. SJCC Sports Camp encourages participants to make smart choices, meet new friends, and develop teamwork and good sportsmanship. Campers increase their confidence through varied games, activities and events.
Everyone loves food! During this one-week camp, you'll learn the skills needed to make delicious meals. Our instructors will put an emphasis on nutrition and the importance of food and kitchen safety. Don’t worry sweets lovers – we'll also whip up pastries and sweets.
Be prepared to be creative and be challenged. During this week long art camp, young artists will be introduced to new techniques and the wonders of art. Campers enjoy fun, educational, experimental, and exploratory art instruction with gentle guidance and individual attention. We'll have a great variety of art materials to experience. Bring a paint shirt – we're going to have lots of artistic fun!
