Camp Savannah Daily Rotations
At JEA Camp Savannah, your child’s safety is our number one priority. We provide campers with a comprehensive swimming program that focuses on building confidence in the pool, stroke development, and water safety skills. Each group is divided into smaller swim groups based on their skill level. Campers participate in swim lessons at least three times a week. Our Red Cross certified instructors will ensure that each camper is given the proper attention needed in order to progress at their own pace. As an added precaution, our Red Cross certified life guards are positioned at key points in the pool to give assistance to instructors. Children who wish to swim in the deep end are required to pass a swim test administered by our swim instructors.
Formerly Sports & Recreation, Squeaky Sneakers explores many different options for keeping the campers active. Campers will have the opportunity to participate in a number of traditional recreational activities such as: soccer, dodge ball, kickball, basketball and numerous tag games. The purpose of Squeaky Sneakers is to introduce campers to more non-traditional activities that offer a full range of motion such as Gaga, Fencing and Ultimate Frisbee.
Camp Savannah’s extensive Arts & Craft program offers campers the unique opportunity to express themselves. We give campers a chance to work with materials they’ve never seen before and to develop a sense of creativity. From tie-dying to “color wars” our program provides the campers with a colorful and whimsical experience.
Year in and year out, Cultural Enrichment is a camper favorite. Each year JEA Camp Savannah has an Emissary from Israel visit our camp for the entire summer who introduces our campers to culture & traditions. Universal values are explored through a Jewish lens by means of art, storytelling, drama, games, music and dance.
Camp Savannah is known for its extravagant themes for each week. It’s during Imaginarium where campers are given the opportunity to explore the depths of their imagination through hands-on activities, cool projects and special presenters. Imaginarium challenges the campers to bring each theme to life.
