Q&A with the Camp at the J:
What makes Camp at the J unique?
Our camp runs weekly, allowing families to be flexible to choose which and how many weeks they want to attend. We also offer unique activities such as archery and gaga to introduce campers to new experiences they wouldn’t normally be exposed to. We incorporate Jewish traditions in a fun and interactive way and that brings in members from the community. One of our favorites is Firetruck Day, where kids get to meet local firefighters (and get to play in the water from the trucks!)
What is the camper-to-counselor ratio?
Our camper-to-counselor ratio is 1:8.
How much time do the campers spend outside?
Campers spend the majority of their time outside. On the hotter days, we move to our indoor facility in the afternoon to ensure the kids do not overheat. We ensure both campers and staff always have access to shade and water.
Does the camp provide lunch/snacks or do parents need to provide them?
Lunch will be offered at an additional cost.
What is the typical daily schedule for campers?
We love that every day is a bit different at Camp at the J! Our general schedule kicks off with Flagpole, where we come together and sing songs and dance to set the happy tone for the day. Then each camper embarks on scheduled activities, which include swimming, archery, exploring nature, exercising, arts & crafts, and so much more! After a fun-packed morning, we refuel with lunch before the campers head to their elective activities. Campers get to choose from a variety of options that were crafted by counselors and other staff members! We finish off the day with bunk time and carline, where the campers head home to share their adventures and stories with their families.
How old are the counselors and how are they trained?
The counselors range from 16 – 25 years old. There is a week-long training session for staff, with additional extensive training for supervisors. These training sessions ensure each staff member is equipped with the knowledge and tools they need to provide campers with the best and safest camp experience possible.
What accommodations are made for campers with special needs?
Camp at the J is inclusive. The accommodations are made for campers with special needs in collaboration with their parents.
What is the best part of Camp at the J?
Our goal at Camp at the J is to serve the whole child, from supporting their physical and mental wellness to weaving in Jewish cultural education and making sure they just have a lot of fun! We partner with the American Camp Association to build wellness initiatives into the summer camp program. We have a youth mental health clinician onsite during camp, as well as a facility dog, to help support campers and communicate with parents.
The best part of Camp at the J is allowing campers to make lifelong friends. We take pride in providing a safe and comfortable environment that allows campers to be their true selves so they can experience the Camp at the J magic that is unparalleled. Come experience the magic yourself!
