Cherryvale Day Camp is Gearing Up for Summer 2024

In the past eight years, Cherryvale Day Camp has grown and expanded with the Boulder community. Starting in 2016, Cherryvale Day Camp created a welcoming and inclusive space for campers, parents, caretakers, and staff. With numerous activities, including sports, creative arts, farm and garden activities at the Milk and Honey Farm, and electives, Cherryvale Day Camp takes every kid’s interests and finds ways to integrate them into camp. 

At camp, Cherryvale Day Camp encourages all staff and campers to show up authentically as themselves. Rooted in Jewish values, Cherryvale creates a vibrant, enriching, and fun summer camp experience for all campers of backgrounds, races, and religions. Our staff emphasizes and engages campers in discussions about the universal values of community, joy, care, respect, growth, and generosity. Children of all backgrounds, faiths, and families are welcome to participate

With a variety of camp experiences, campers have the opportunity to participate in different kinds of activities and programs. In our two-week sessions, campers are organized in bunks by age and experience a daily and weekly schedule in which campers participate in sports, art, STEM, nature, and sustainability programs. In our specialty camp sessions, campers have a specific activity focus, where they’ll spend the majority of their day engaging in their focus activity, while also having the opportunity to enjoy some activities from our two-week session camp, like sprinkler day, playground time, and special theme days. 

Molly Herz, Camp Administrator and former counselor, has been involved at Cherryvale Day Camp since 2021. “One of the reasons I come back to Cherryvale Day Camp year after year is the positive experience that every summer provides, not just for me but for campers as well,” states Herz. “Cherryvale focuses on inclusivity and community, making every kid feel welcomed, encouraged, and supported, which is why it is such an easy decision to come back every summer.”

Cherryvale Day Camp is a deep meaningful connection to not just our campers, but also our counselors that come back year after year. We still have openings left for our specialty camps and camp counselors. For more information on the role and responsibilities, please follow this link. If you want to enroll your child in one of the camp sessions, please follow this website link or contact Molly Herz at molly.herz@boulderjcc.org if you have any questions.
