JCC Maccabi Sports Camp - We're exited to offer a new Day Camp option for youth entering grades 3-6. In partnership with two local JCCs, our new week-long day camps allow children to be part of a sports program that combines the comfort of a day camp within the immersive experience of a residential camp. During the week, campers will be welcomed into our resident camp community and sharpen their skills in the sport of their choice. 
Morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up will be at the PJCC in Foster City or the Oshman Family JCC in Palo Alto. Campers will then be bussed from the JCCs to our campgrounds in Atherton.
