Children and Camp

The Children and Camp Departments run year-round at the JEA, and are here for all of your childcare needs.
Our programs include: Before and After School Care, Days at the JKids' Night Out and JEA Camp Savannah

All of our programs provide children with nurturing experiences that help promote social, emotional and intellectual development. Our diverse programs teach universal values that encourage children to explore aspects of Jewish traditions while remaining culturally sensitive to others. We provide a positive atmosphere that is fundamentally focused on creating lasting and positive relationships.
