EVERY CHILD BELONGS AT CAMP
Every child belongs at our J camps and deserves the opportunity to take risks and accept new challenges. Camp is where we grow and develop these crucial life skills.
Camp is also a place where we’re welcomed as part of this special place – we slow down, take deep breaths, and explore our amazing J. We invite everyone to be silly…laugh…have fun…and make new friends in our safe, nurturing environment. J Camps offer a unique experience where you can choose your “tour” options. While we encourage you to pick a single camp for an entire session where you can build stronger bonds with new friends, you have the opportunity to select individual weeks to check out a different camp.
Our staff is amazing! Many counselors were J campers, and we are all committed to helping your child grow. J Camps are our home away from home, so come home this summer!
Summer 2019 – my 42nd year as the Camp Chai Director, but that doesn’t include the years I worked (and met my husband) at my sleep away camp or my years as a camper starting at age 5. Many have heard me say this – I believe that camp is the most important experience a child can ever have. Why? Because it is at camp, and especially at our J camps, that we provide more than fun – we teach life skills, share values, listen, nurture, care, build community, inspire, and more. We are the place for friendship, belonging, growing, teamwork, independence, and even RISK. We are a place for the whole family forever. “You may leave camp, but camp will never leave you.” Become a part of our family this year!
