Camp Sol Taplin wouldn’t be the same without its usual high-caliber of specialty camps including Soccer, Junior Aquatics, All Sports, Super Sports, Future Stars Tennis, and Gymnastics camps. “These camps enhance specific sport skills in a fun and positive atmosphere while kids gain a greater understanding of the sport,” says Iris Mizrahi, MAR-JCC Program Director.
Participating in all camp-wide special events are the Premier Camps. These camps are devoted to improving skills and knowledge, are led by a Senior Staff Member, and include dance, aquatics, theatre, and tennis. “Our J-CAT Summer Stock Camp is ideal for kids interested in theatre but who don’t necessarily have time during the school year to hone their acting skills, we give them the opportunity to learn and have a blast at the same time,” says Michael Andron, of The J’s Cultural Arts Theatre.
Extreme camps are exactly that, and great for kids grade 5-7. Camps such as Extreme Adventure are ideal for the kid who is an adventure seeker. Activities include scuba and Jr. Lifeguard experience with trips this summer to theme parks, and camping in the Pocono Mountains. Extreme Sports will take the sports enthusiast to a new level with trips to Bucky Dent Baseball School in Del Ray Beach, and an Atlanta Braves Baseball Game in Atlanta, Georgia.
“I think our programming is top notch, no other camp in South Florida offers the variety, quality, and caliber of programming that Camp Sol Taplin at the Michael-Ann Russell JCC does, adds Iris Mizrahi. “We want our camp to appeal to all types of kids, we like to consider ourselves a Camp for all Campers, that’s why we painstakingly strive to make each summer better and better.”
Camp Sol Taplin also offers summer employment for high school and college-age kids with positions as LIT (Leader in training) and CIT (Counselor in training). Registration is going on now, with special discounts for paying in full by January 28 (5% off) or registering by February 28 ($185 off per camper).
