The Mandel Jewish Community Center has been providing outstanding day camp programs since the 1940s. We offer five different camps at three beautiful locations and have the perfect camp to fit the needs and interests of every child, ages 2 through Grade 9.

Mandel JCC Day Camps’ Vision
Mandel JCC day camps are vibrant, nurturing communities rooted in Jewish values and traditions that inspire campers and staff to learn, grow, and explore while creating lasting memories that strengthen the Cleveland community.

The goal of J Day Camps is to provide children an enriching, fun and exceptional day camping experience. We offer a wide variety of activities for our campers with swimming, boating, archery, campfires, singing, sports, horseback riding, camp-outs, musical performances and much more! Our campers have plenty of opportunities to explore nature, discover new talents, try new activities, gain independence and build lasting friendships and memories.

From the first song to the last goodbye, J campers are immersed in adventures, ruach (spirit) and fun! At all of our camps, friendships blossom, connections are formed and campers develop a true sense of belonging to a diverse and dynamic Jewish community.

Feel free to browse through our camp options, and please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or would like more information.


What Makes J-Day Camps So Special?

At all of our J-Day Camps, campers learn the Jewish values of kehillah (community), achreiyut (responsibility), shituf peula (cooperation) and tikkun olam (repairing our world) in a way that goes hand-in-hand with splashing in the pool, climbing on the expanded ropes course and shouting a camp cheer!
  • Fun, amazing experiences
  • Enthusiastic, energetic and caring staff
  • Fabulous facilities including Halle Park, our beautiful, country campsite located in Burton, OH (busing provided)
  • Beautiful Safran Park with newly-renovated pools and an outdoor sprayground on The J’s Beachwood campus
  • Robust programming that includes sports, music, arts and crafts, day trips, swim lessons, late nights, overnights, & much more!
