Jewish Community Center Projects

Camp Wise
Camp Wise

Camp Wise is located about 30 miles east of Cleveland in Burton, Ohio. At the camp, every day is an adventure of self-discovery. It is one of two camp sites run by the Jewish Community Center of Cleveland to serve Cleveland-area children.

Major renovations to the camp included work on the Debra Ann November Pavilion, which was dedicated in the summer of 2005. This covered activity center includes a full basketball court, storage areas and bathrooms. The Debra Ann November Activity Center also is used on rainy days or on occasions when all campers and counselors participate in large group programs or activities.

Debra Ann November Kid Space

Kid SpaceThanks to the generous support of Mort and Iris November and the Phyllis and Debra Ann November Children's Fund, the Jewish Community Center of Cleveland has an indoor playground known as the Debra Ann November Kid Space.

The Debra Ann November Kid Space is the Jewish Community Center of Cleveland's "indoor playground." Two connecting rooms provide accessible and developmentally appropriate indoor play areas for children, from infant through age eight.

The room for younger children includes a "soft area" for babies and crawlers, while older children can play in a loft, on slides and climbing bars, or crawl through equipment. The Debra Ann November Kid Space is fun for children and provides a great place where parents can socialize. The center was dedicated on June 9, 2004.
