Grossman specialty programs include:

  • Kibbutz Grossman — an opportunity to experience community living with a combination of electives, Maccabiah, work projects and optional overnights. Four to eight weeks, for campers entering grades 8 and 9.
  • Orthodox Campers — a program where observant campers are integrated into camp while still observing orthodox traditions and customs. Campers will be assigned to general bunks that have at least one orthodox counselor. These campers will have the opportunity to daven in the morning and to observe the Jewish holidays during the summer months in an appropriate manner. Prayers before and after meals will also be recited. In addition, these campers will be exposed to additional Jewish culture learning (Tarboot) throughout their time at camp.
  • Grossman’s Special Needs program, offering campers with mild to moderate disabilities a regular camp program under the guidance of experienced counselors. There is also the opportunity for inclusion with extra support.
  • Day and Overnight Camp Combos — designed for prospective first-time overnight campers, an opportunity to enjoy day camp and try JCC Camp Kingswood overnight camp located in southern Maine. One- and two-week options available. Register for at least two weeks at both Grossman and Kingswood for a combined special rate.
  • Counselor in Training (CIT) — program prepares high school students for counselor positions.
  • Ninth Week — designed for families that need coverage between the end of camp and beginning of school, provides a longer day for ages 5-12. Bus pickups and drop-offs are available in Newton, Stoughton, Brookline, Lexington, Sharon, Framingham, Cambridge and Natick.
