Staenberg Kooper Fellman Campus

JCC Summer Camp

Stay tuned! 2023 information coming soon.

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.
