The JCC of Syracuse has received a generous naming gift for its summer camp. The significant donation from Joe and Lynne Romano, founders of the Romano Auto Group, has prompted the renaming of the JCC’s summer camp to the JCC Camp Joe and Lynne Romano. The new name was announced at the JCC’s Annual Meeting & Gala on June 4.

“We are incredibly appreciative of the Romano’s very generous gift to benefit our summer camp program,” said Marci Erlebacher, JCC of Syracuse executive director. “This naming is ushering in an exciting new era for our summer camp and will help extend the Romano’s legacy of selfless support and generosity throughout our community.”

The JCC’s Camp Joe and Lynne Romano summer day camp serves hundreds of children each year ages 6 weeks through tenth grade. Held weekdays for eight weeks starting June 26 this summer, camp at the JCC allows children to have a blast as they interact with peers, make new friends and broaden their horizons. The early childhood camp is for children 6-weeks old through entering kindergarten, school-age camp is open to children entering grades 1–6 and the SyraCruisin’ teen travel camp is for young teens entering grades 7–10. Each camp day begins and ends at the JCC in DeWitt. Depending on the camp, some campers may go off-site for scheduled field trips and activities. Early and late care options are available for all campers.

“We feel that it is necessary to support the JCC to ensure the future of this community center for our children, grandchildren and generations to come,” said Lynne Romano.
