Great news: Summer is right around the corner and warmer days are on the horizon! That means now is the time to start planning out all of your fun-filled summer vacation plans. Need something to keep the kids active and engaged this summer? Then you need to check out JCC Buffalo’s Camp Centerland

Located in Getzville, Camp Centerland is WNY’s premier summer camp for children entering Pre-K through grade 9. And considering the camp spans 20+ acres and includes everything you need for the perfect summer camp adventure, it’s easy to see why. We’re talking hiking trails, a high ropes course, an archery range, two soccer fields, a baseball diamond, a full-sized theater and dance studio, an indoor heated pool, and so much more to explore.

Day Camp Programs at Camp Centerland 

Camp Centerland’s philosophy is rooted in the belief that teaching and demonstrating the Jewish values of Chesed (kindness), Kehillah (community), and Tikkun Olam (healing the world) is as important as splashing in the swimming pool, enjoying a popsicle, and singing all of your favorite camp songs.

The day camp programs at Camp Centerland are organized by age range to meet your child where they’re at developmentally. That means whether they’re in first grade or entering high school, they’ll learn, play, and make long-lasting friendships in a group filled with other peers their age.

New for 2023: Specialty Camps 

If you’re a returning camper, you’ll be pleased to hear about Camp Centerland’s brand new specialty camps. These specialized programs are taught by professional instructors and can be combined with all of the existing activities you know and love. Kids can choose from five different areas of interest, including 

  • Art – Learn new art techniques in drawing, painting, and sculpture, while experimenting with various art materials in a creative environment. 
  • Dance – Explore different forms of creative movement like ballet, jazz, and hip-hop. Then, let your talent shine in a small camper showcase!
  • Esports – Held in the brand-new Esports Arena, kids are invited to indulge in their passion for gaming in a way that encourages team-building skills, collaboration, and communication. 
  • Photography – Spend the summer immersed in nature as you capture photos of all of the beauty (and action!) around Camp Centerland. Kids will also work in the School of Digital Media Computer Lab to finalize their work.
  • Theater – Learn to express yourself through acting and theater skills as you prepare to perform in a play at the end of the week!
