Enrichment Activities

Camp at the J offers a variety of fun and educational programming taught by expert specialists. Enrichment activities include archery, arts and crafts, sports, drama, and much more. These activities foster friendship, build confidence, and offer opportunities for campers to learn new skills.

Jewish Values

Camp at the J incorporates values-based learning where children learn about core values of respect, kindness, and community. Campers learn about Israel and international Jewish life through lessons and interactions with our Sh’lichim, counselor friends from Israel. At the end of each week, we gather for Shabbat Sing, where we celebrate our camp community and give out weekly awards.

Age Groups

Campers are divided into age-appropriate co-ed groups. Each group is then divided into bunks of 12 campers to maintain a low staff-camper ratio and encourage small group bonding.

  • Pioneers (Kindergarten)
  • Trailblazer (Grades 1 – 2)
  • Raiders (Grades 3 – 4)
  • Quest (Grades 5 – 8)

No one shall be denied admission to our camp, or to the benefits of our program services because of race, color, national origin, sex, or handicap.
