At Camp J, we encourage growth, inspire confidence, and create the framework for lasting memories and friendships. We provide quality programs that are age-appropriate, fun, and safe. Our camp is imbued with a sense of joy (simcha), community (kehila), spirit (ruach), and fun (kef). Throughout all our programs, we encourage discovery and self-expression.
We carefully craft our camp programs to nurture your child’s interests, offering
traditional and specialty programs, with age-appropriate activities focused on
both fun and learning. There’s never a dull moment at Camp J!
Your child’s care and well-being are our priorities. It takes a great staff to
make a great camp. We carefully screen and interview candidates to ensure
that we hire staff who are committed, hardworking, enthusiastic role models
for kids. All camp staff participate in our comprehensive multi-day staff training. Many of our camp staff return to us year after year, and our low staff-to-camper ratio (no more than 10 campers for each counselor) ensures a safe and successful summer.
We hope that your family will join us at Camp J this year and be part of the BEST. SUMMER. EVER.

Each summer, we select four values that we build our community around. These values permeate everything our campers and staff members do on a daily basis, creating a cohesive and appreciative community. While these values are rooted in Jewish tradition, we believe that they are universal values and are taught in an inclusive way that is relevant to each child’s everyday lives, regardless of their family background..
