Camp Jaycee is a residential summer camp for children and adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities. Camp Jaycee is located in Effort, Pennsylvania. Campers come from all over New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania to create a community of friends. The campsite is on 185 acres of forests, fields and streams in the lovely Pocono Mountains, a short distance from the New Jersey border. The centerpiece of camp is a beautiful two-acre spring-fed pond. Nearby, the air-conditioned dining hall is the hub of camp life.
Camp Jaycee features an active, diverse program that includes swimming, boating, dance, and movement, sports and games, arts and crafts, music and singing and nature education. Every day is an adventure at Camp Jaycee. Our counselors are wonderful, caring individuals, whose goal it is to make everyone’s stay at Jaycee special and memorable. Many return year after year. They are selected for their maturity and judgment and are then extensively trained.
The health and safety of our campers is our first concern. Our camp nurses are on duty 24 hours a day and staff a modern, well-equipped infirmary, where they administer all medication, provide both routine and emergency medical care, and offer comfort and support. We have a consulting physician available and relationships with several local hospitals for immediate access to more extensive care if needed.
