The Camp Day    

  • Campers meet in their classrooms in our preschool, and then begin the day together with the older groups of Camp J by singing camp songs around the American and Israeli flags.
  • Includes activities like arts & crafts, athletics, drama, music, nature, playground time, science discovery, Israeli culture and of course—swimming.  
  • Pizza lunch is available for purchase on Mondays & Fridays.
  • We close each day with our Song Session—an interactive concert led by our expert song leaders.  
  • Song Session ends every day with Camper Awards and on Fridays with a special Shabbat (Sabbath) program.  

Led by the Best

  • The Sameach unit is staffed by teachers from our Richard S. Adler Early Childhood Learning Center and is based in its classrooms, making this the perfect bridge year into Camp J from Camp J Junior. 
  • Campers get to know our “shliach,” a young emissary from Israel, who teaches about Israel using a wide variety of activities which celebrate Jewish heritage.
