Sunflower Day Camp

Sunflower Camp will be held from July 20 – August 14, with adapted programs to ensure the safety of our staff, campers, and their families. We’re working to create a place of exploration and delight for children to enjoy – even if the programming looks different from our traditional camp activities. Our summer parent orientation via Zoom on Tuesday, July 14 at 5:00 pm.

Sunflower Day Camp at JCYS Lutz Family Center offers something sensational for all our young campers with weekly themes, exciting adventures, and lots of messy fun.

Sunflower Day Camp is for the Whole Family

Just like our school-year programs at JCYS Highland Park, Sunflower Day Camp is really a camp for the whole family. Camp kicks off with Parent Orientation night and parents are always welcome at our Parent Swim program observations and our camp party at the Lil’. We send home weekly newsletters from each group of campers and a bi-weekly all-camp newsletter to keep parents updated on all camp happenings. Camp photos will be also be posted daily through Kaymbu, our electronic communication site.

Experienced Program Staff

Sunflower Day Camp is led by the same early childhood teachers who lead classrooms at JCYS Highland Park during the school year. Children love seeing the familiar faces of the teachers they know, and our experienced staff members – including our full-time Child and Family Development Specialist – have the know-how to guide children through any developmental challenges and fully support parents throughout the summer. Sunflower campers also have a great time with our Counselors-In-Training, trained assistants in grades 8-10 who help our full-time staff, act as good role models for our younger campers, and ease pick-up and drop-off transitions.
