Welcoming for Everyone!

J Camps encourage diversity by genuinely welcoming Campers into a fun and inclusive environment. We strive to instill a sense of real community, so Campers end each day highly anticipating the next day of Camp. Jewish values are integrated into our programs in a manner which appeals to parents and children of all faiths and backgrounds.

Great Staff!

Our counselors are simply the best! Our skilled and trained staff create a safe environment and lead activities which establish cooperation and socialization skills. Most of our staff were once campers at The J, so they know the impact of great role models, fun activities and outstanding Camp spirit!

Israeli Counselors: Each summer we hire Israeli young adults as Shlichim (Emissaries). The Shlichim enrich the camp experience with Israeli cultural activities, and special projects.
