Jewish Council for Youth Services (JCYS) offers educational, recreational and leadership experiences throughout the year at our family centers, multiple summer camps and specialty programs. Programs are designed to nurture each child’s individual spirit, imagination, confidence and talents.

For over a century, JCYS has responded to the varying needs and shifting demographics in the Chicagoland area. Though our programs and services continue to change and evolve to meet the demands of the community, our commitment and dedication to service – and those we serve – remains constant.
