Camp Store

You can order store items when you enroll your camper through CampDoc. Or download the J Camp Store order form and return to The J’s Front Reception Desk or scan and e-mail it to us. Campers will receive their store items during Camper Orientation or the first week they attend Camp.


J Camp Lunch

Campers have the option to bring a sack lunch or to purchase catered lunches. When bringing lunch, please refrain from shellfish and pork and nuts. Juice and water are provided daily.

During J Camp and special sessions, May 29 – August 10, campers can choose to bring their own lunch or pre-order purchase through CampDoc or use the form. Due to the nature of the program, lunch is not available for Ma’asim Tovim campers.

We have two options for ordering lunch:

  1. Hy-Vee will provide a kosher-style meal which will not contain nuts. The cost is $26.25 per week | $15.75 for MWF | $5.25 per day. 
  2. The J Heritage Center Kitchen will provide a Vaad supervised Kosher lunch which will not contain nuts. The cost is $32.00 per week | $19.20 for MWF | $6.40 per day.

Lunches are available by the day during special sessions (Blast-Off, July Jamboree, Last Blast). Ma’asim Tovim campers can purchase lunch during July Jamboree. J Campers who have ordered lunch will be provided a sack lunch on field trip days if campers are eating off-site. Lunch fee is non-refundable and non-transferable. Orders must be placed the Wednesday before the camp week starts. 

If you have questions, please contact us via e-mail or at (913) 327-8004.

Special Needs + Inclusion

The Jewish Community Center is able to support a limited number of children with special needs for J Camp, primarily through funding by Sasone and the Jewish Federation of Greater Kansas City. If your child has special needs or requires assistance to successfully function in a group setting and wants to attend J Camp, before enrolling, please contact the appropriate J Camp Director:
