JCC Denver Planning Socially Distanced Summer Camps

The Staenberg-Loup Jewish Community Center is offering several camps that fit within city and state COVID-19 guidelines* through the Mizel Arts and Culture Center’s Wolf Theatre Academy and the JCC’s Camp Shai.  

Camps through the Mizel Arts and Culture Center’s Wolf Theatre Academy include in-person pod camps with a limited number of campers and virtual theatre camps for kids in grades 3-12. Traditional day camps through the JCC’s Camp Shai will be offered in-person in small group pods and as virtual specialty camps for rising kindergartners to 10th graders. Camp offerings are listed below. 

Across all JCC Denver camps, health and safety measures will be in place, including taking the temperature of everyone entering the facility before they are admitted into the building and disinfecting every night, among many others.

*Please note, all of the in-person pod camps are pending until at least May 25, when the Governor is planning on speaking about summer camps to provide updated state and local camp guidelines.

Camps include: 

The Wolf Theatre Academy is holding three sessions – each two weeks long – offering specialized, intensive-style performing arts classes in “class pods” of 10 students or less.
