The MARJCC located on the Sanford L. Ziff Campus at 18900 NE 25th Avenue in North Miami Beach, is known for its richly diverse summer camp programming. This summer in particular will be a scorcher, but not just because of the summer heat.
In its efforts to keep its long-standing record of being rated one of the best summer camps in Miami-Dade County, and address the popular trends of the city’s youth, the MAR-JCC’s Camp Sol Taplin will offer exciting new camps such as Magicamp, which will teach the secrets of magic and illusion, while building character, confidence, and self-esteem. Science and Space Camp will offer hands-on science and space projects including rocket making, slime time, electro magnets, solar powered cars and much more. Also added to the bunch is Girls, Inc. which focuses on what girls like, including boot-camp and nutrition, jewelry making, soccer, painting, field hockey, and cake decorating; and returning with an entirely new curriculum, Camp Picasso will offer amazing new mediums for the budding artist with renowned claymation artist, Jorge Cruz.
Camp Sol Taplin wouldn’t be the same without its usual high-caliber of specialty camps including Soccer, Junior Aquatics, All Sports, Super Sports, Future Stars Tennis, and Gymnastics camps. “These camps enhance specific sport skills in a fun and positive atmosphere while kids gain a greater understanding of the sport,” says Iris Mizrahi, MAR-JCC program director.
Participating in all camp-wide special events are the Premier Camps. These camps are devoted to improving skills and knowledge, are led by a senior staff member, and include dance, aquatics, theatre, and tennis.
Extreme camps are exactly that, and great for kids grade 5-7. Camps such as Extreme Adventure are ideal for the kid who is an adventure seeker. Activities include scuba and Jr. Lifeguard experience with trips this summer to theme parks, and camping in the Pocono Mountains. Extreme Sports will take the sports enthusiast to a new level with trips to Bucky Dent Baseball School in Del Ray Beach, and an Atlanta Braves Baseball Game in Atlanta, Georgia.
