JCC's Camp Centerland

Summer Camp for Kids

Serving families in Amherst, Buffalo, and surrounding areas.

Serving families in Amherst, Buffalo, and surrounding areas, Camp Centerland is the JCC's premiere summer day camp for children entering Pre-K though grade 9. Camp Centerland is a WNY summer camp like no other! Located in Getzville, NY, the Irving M Shuman Campgrounds cover 19 acres of athletic fields, wooded nature trails, adventure challenge courses, activity shelters, and much more. Providing a stimulating and nurturing environment based on Jewish values for kids of all faiths and backgrounds, Camp Centerland is a place where each child develops the confidence to be the best that he or she can be, and in turn, a contributing member of the greater community. We are committed to providing a safe, fun, and memorable day camp experience through quality hiring, innovative programming and focus on positive values in a Jewish setting. We strive for our campers to learn new skills, accomplish realistic goals, and return home each day with a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction. We believe that is what camp is all about!
