The Staenberg Omaha JCC encourages diversity. Campers of all backgrounds are welcome regardless of race, faith, or national origin. We believe in teaching responsibility, cooperation, community, and service in a way that goes hand-in-hand with splashing in the pool and shouting a camp cheer. Jewish values and culture are integrated in a manner that appeals to parents and children of all faiths and backgrounds.
