Meet the Camp Firefly Staff

Camp Firefly offers a unique summer camp experience to boys and girls, ages 9-18, who have been diagnosed with social disorders, such as Social Anxiety, OCD, PDD, Asperger's Syndrome, Non-Verbal Learning Disorder, and High Functioning Autism.

As we shared in April, Camp Firefly was canceled for summer 2020 and is on hiatus until further notice. This decision was made with an understanding of the unique needs of our campers and because of the need for our internal resources at JCFS to be redirected to best serve our families. Though we won't be able to meet this summer, JCFS Chicago remains committed to supporting our campers and their families by transitioning counseling and support groups like Sibshops online.

Camp Firefly is presented in partnership with JCC's of Chicago.  The camps are located just minutes from Wisconsin Dells at JCC's Camp Chi.
