JCC staff developed an exciting lineup of Camp Wise Outdoor Fun Day programs. These unique offerings provide families and groups an opportunity to experience the magic of Camp Wise – the Home of Happiness for generations of Greater Cleveland children – while social distancing in the great outdoors.

Providing Support for Families in Jewish Cleveland

Jordan is an active 14-year-old boy, who attends a local Jewish Day School.
