Spotlight on Camp By The Sea:
If your family is spending time at the South NJ Shore this summer, then there is only one camp for you - Camp By The Sea. Based out of the Milton & Betty Katz Jewish Community Center in beautiful Margate, NJ, Camp By The Sea offers a complete summer camp experience packed with arts, crafts, music, nature, sports, trips, beach time and surf lessons for children entering Second Grade and up. Each action-packed day offers campers a new theme when they may dress up as a super hero or leave camp with rainbow colored hair!
The preschool campers at Camp By The Sea are in the Shacar group. This group has the option of coming to camp for two, three or five days per week and may choose between half- or full-day programs. Margate JCC's Early Childhood Center is home to the Shacar Camp which is staffed by certified teachers and is very proud of its great staff-to-camper ratio and dynamic program. Campers ages 3-4 have a summer filled with beach time, special trips to Storybook Land, aquariums and museums. All Shacar campers receive swim lessons, free swim and water play to stay cool during those hot summer days. In addition, campers explore their creative side with an age appropriate art program and learn about the critters in the JCC Nature & Science Center. Shacar campers receive other great electives throughout the day such as music, drama, sports, cooking, tumbling and Israel culture.
Camp By The Sea's Gesher & Chaverim Camp is for children in Grades K-3. This group experiences fantastic weekly trips to State Parks, water parks, zoos and more! In addition, campers entering Second Grade and up receive weekly surf lessons at the Margate Beach from Heritage Surf Shop professionals. Gesher & Chaverim campers also receive swim lessons, free swim and lots of great electives such as art, Israel culture, sports, karate and kid's yoga! Fridays are special for this group as they enjoy special events ranging from magic shows, petting zoos, DJ dance parties, concerts and more! The summer culminates with an intense Color War Week spanning five days - for most Gesher & Chaverim children, this special week is the highlight of their summer, and their year!
Campers entering Grades 4-6 are able to enjoy the Camp By The Sea Noar Adventure Camp. This group is unique because the campers choose and create their own schedules two days a week! In addition, the Noar Adventure Camp enjoys weekly time on the JCC rock wall and special trips including canoeing, kayaking and other water-based activities - including Monday surf lessons! This adventure camp does not receive swim lessons, but does have the option to learn synchronized swimming, become a junior lifeguard or compete in weekly swim races. The sports program for Noar is much more advanced and campers receive special weekly clinics, practice games and drills to help perfect their athletic abilities.
The oldest campers entering Grades 7-10 enjoy the ultimate summer camp, Road Rulz, which includes four travel weeks touring the best of the East Coast and four non-travel weeks, where they enjoy daily trips to some of the areas coolest locations. This summer our Road Rulz group will spend two weeks in Canada, visiting Montreal and Toronto! In addition, they will enjoy other great East Coast destinations such as New York City, Philadelphia, NJ Y Camps, Baltimore and Virginia! This is the premier travel camp at the NJ shore, proving once again - The Katz JCC and Camp By The Sea are the places to be!
