Camp J’s Yeladim

Yeladim is for campers entering grades 2-3 and means "children" in Hebrew.



The Camp Day      

  • Each day starts with singing camp songs around the American and Israeli flags.
  • Includes activities like arts & crafts, athletics, drama, music, nature (teva), playground time, science discovery, video production, gaga (Israeli dodgeball), Israeli culture, and of course—swimming.  
  • Pizza lunch is provided 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

  • Our counselor and specialist positions are highly selective.  
  • Our team is comprised of an incredible group of elementary education majors, Jewish campus leaders, school teachers, and Camp J alumni. 
  • They annually complete 40 hours of specialized training, including First Aid & CPR, to ensure your camper has the most rewarding and safe experience possible.     
  • 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.

Making a Splash

  • Structured swim three times per week with American Red Cross-trained Water Safety Instructors.
  • Free swim once per week.  

Field Trips Every Week

  • Session I: FunSpot (June 13) and Kennedy Space Center & JCC Overnight (June 20)
  • Session II: Chocolate Kingdom (June 27) and and Astro Skate (July 1)
  • Session III: Putting Edge Mini Golf (July 11) and Coco Key Water Park (July 18)
  • Session IV: Legoland & JCC Overnight (July 25) and AMF Altamonte Lanes (August 1)

All camp groups in the Yeladim unit travel together, so trips are always well-supervised and age appropriate.  

Our campers entering grades 2-3 get to experience 3 coveted overnights (2 field trips and color war), where campers eat dinner, swim, sing camp songs at bedtime, and then eat breakfast, creating a memorable, bonding experience.

Specialty Track Option (Offered Sessions I-IV)
Choose a specialty track, like Yeladim Sports (Sessions I-IV) or Yeladim Musical Theater (Sessions I-IV.) Sports & theater campers still attend overnights, field trips, special events, swim and specialists.
