The Valley of Sun JCC has begun registering children for its 10 week Shemesh Summer Camp in Scottsdale, May 29-Aug. 3.

Shemesh Summer Camp at The J offers an array of camp options, including traditional, sports and specialty camps. Children entering grades 2-4 enjoy specialty camp options such as engineering with LEGOS, circus school, arts and theater, science and sports.

Activities are led by Shemesh partners Mad Science, Bricks 4 Kidz and Circus School of Arizona, according to a press release.

Campers entering K-1 are offered Kindergarden Blast-off or Fly into First Grade to help them prepare for school with fun and enriching activities.

All camps include age-appropriate activities, free swim, special guests, daily snacks and enriching weekly field trips.
