Hi, I’m Betsy, and I’m the director of Camp J. My goal this summer is not just to provide your camper with a positive, memorable camp experience, but also to make this summer easy for you, the parent. As a parent myself, I know the challenges of managing your child’s schedule, and also of trusting them in the care of others. My job is to help you through this process so that summer can be fun both for you and your campers!

 

I have been working at camp for 25 years. It’s a magical place where kids can be themselves and feel accepted and cared for. It’s also a place of learning and growth, where campers can explorer their interests and find out about ones they never had! Our inclusive camp community embraces all campers and gives them all a chance to shine. We hope your family will become part of the Camp J family this summer!

Why a Jewish camp?

Camp J is a program of the Jack & Lee Rosen Jewish Community Center. We are a cultural institution whose mission is to serve local families and our entire community. Jewish values and culture are the foundation from which we derive our mission. We believe that these values – such as respect, honestly, friendship, and community – are universal.

 

The Southwest Orlando community is incredibly diverse, and this diversity is embraced in all of our programming. Our goal is to make all campers feel comfortable and included. We are not a religious institution, although we sometimes sing songs with Hebrew words (usually the word “shalom”, or “peace” is a prominent theme), and we do a brief Shabbat celebration on Friday afternoon, which includes a song session filled with spirit (“ruach”) and eating challah bread. We also bring a counselor from Israel to lead our arts and crafts activities, with the intention of exposing our children to a different culture and building a relationship between our communities.

 

Whether you are Jewish or not, your family will be welcome at Camp J and the JCC. If you have any questions about our program, please don’t hesitate to ask us.

OUR VALUES

WHAT OTHER PARENTS ARE SAYING...

“My two kids, Julia (10) and Andrew (6), absolutely love Camp J and can’t wait for the summer to get here already. There are so many choices and the camp is very well organized. Camp J is the place to be to hang with old friends and meet new ones.”

-Susan Flower, Camp J Mom

“We have attended Camp J for the last six years. What we love at Camp J more than other camps we have found is variety! My daughter has her pick of the the type of camp she wants to do, from theater to sports, so each week is like going to a whole new camp. Plus, as a working mom, I love that they have a before- and after-care that I can use when I need it. Now that Emily is getting older, she can’t wait to be a counselor-in-training! We just love growing up with Camp J.”

-Jody Layne, Camp J Mom

“Our daughter, Alyssa, has gone to Camp J’s early childhood camp for three years and Camp J’s youth camp for one summer. She has loved every moment of it and is looking forward to this summer already! As parents, we are so happy to know she feels safe, comfortable and happy! We look forward to sending our son for the first time this summer!”

-Leslie Weiner, Camp J Mom
