Summer 2020 – my 43rd 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!
