Center Day Camp was established in 1949 by the Jewish Community Center in Portland. Just 20 minutes west of Portland, Center Day Camp sits on 27 spectacular acres of woods, fields and shoreline. Generations of campers have spent their days lakeside, forming life-long friendships, learning new skills, and experiencing the magic of camp. Today, CDC is a non-denominational day camp of the Jewish Community Alliance, welcoming campers age 5-15 of all faiths and backgrounds, while exploring Jewish traditions.
