Youth, Teen & Family Programs


Along with our Early Childhood Preschool and Summer Camp Programs the Milton & Betty Katz JCC offers additional programs and events for children and families in our community.

Is your teen interested in learning about Crime Scene Investigation?

The National CSI Camp is designed as an education class that is run by the professionals who have worked hundreds of crime scenes. Led by Sean Clancy, retired Captain of Detectives from the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office in Mays Landing.

Camp is available to high school and pre-high school students who are at least in 7th grade, are mature minded and have an interest in Law Enforcement and/or science. Students will learn to use state-of-the-art techniques and technology from Detectives that have used them to solve real-life crimes.
