New for Summer 2020
MJCCA Day Camps Earns ACA Accreditation
MJCCA Day Camps is thrilled to announce that we have earned accreditation by the American Camp Association (ACA)! ACA collaborates with experts from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Red Cross, and other youth-serving agencies to assure that current practices at camps reflect the most up-to-date, research-based standards in camp operation. ACA accreditation is the best evidence parents have of a camp’s commitment to a safe and nurturing environment for their children. MJCCA Day Camps and ACA form a partnership that promotes growth and fun in an environment committed to safety. This voluntary accreditation assures parents that our camp practices have been measured against national standards and go a step beyond Georgia’s basic licensing requirements.

An Extra Week of Camp: August 10-14
We’ve added an extra week of camp! From August 10–14, rising K–6th graders can choose from amazing options like Camp Isidore Alterman, Edible Art, and Coding Camp. If school is still out for your child, join us for even more fun, friendships, and adventure!
Before-Camp Care Reading Program
Campers can progress on their summer reading during our Before- Camp Care Reading Program! Participants will work on summer reading/assignments from 7:30–8:15 am in a designated reading room. You can sign your child up for this program when you register online for camp. The Before-Camp Care Reading Program is the same price as Before-Camp Care ($35 per camper, per week).
Camp Isidore Alterman Western Wall
The installation of our very own Western Wall, built to model the Western Wall in Jerusalem, will be another exciting way for our Camp Isidore Alterman campers to engage in Israeli culture! Campers of all ages and backgrounds will be able to leave notes in the cracks of the wall during the summer. Our Shlichim (emissaries) will then place them at the real Western Wall in Jerusalem when they return to Israel after the camp season.
