Camp Shemesh, a program of the Jewish Community of Amherst (JCA), is in our 32nd year of operation. Through a framework of Jewish themes and values, we provide space for youth to explore their authentic selves while learning to be thoughtful and environmentally sensitive people and leaders. Camp engages music, creative arts, gardening, sports, swimming, team challenges, Kabbalat Shabbat celebrations, and more to nurture exploration in the arenas of self-expression, earth stewardship, community, and identity. We value diversity and pride ourselves in our welcoming, joyful and inclusive atmosphere for both Jewish and non-Jewish families.

We have daily swim every day. Our camp day runs from 8:45 am to 3:30 pm Monday through Friday. Financial aid is available. We serve campers and teens in K – 10th grades.
