Q&A with the Camp at the J:

What makes Camp at the J unique?

Our all-inclusive camp runs on a weekly basis, allowing families to have the flexibility to choose which and how many weeks they would like to attend. We also offer unique activities such as Archery to introduce campers to new experiences they wouldn’t normally be exposed to. We are an all-inclusive camp that incorporates Jewish traditions in a fun and interactive way and also bring in members from the community. One of our favorites is Firetruck Day where kids get to meet local firefighters.



What activities are offered at Camp at the J?

From swimming and archery, to arts & crafts, camp values and color wars, and much more, kids will create memories and form friendships to last a lifetime. Give your child a summer to remember at Camp at the J!

What is the camper-to-counselor ratio?

Our camper-to-counselor ratio is 1:6 with 2:12 in a bunk. We have decreased the ratio in order to allow for social distancing to ensure a safe and healthy environment for all campers and staff.



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 onto scheduled activities which include swimming, archery, exploring nature, exercising, arts and crafts, and so much more! After a fun-packed morning, we refuel with lunch before the campers head onto 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?

We offer 1:1 assistance for campers that need adaptions or require additional assistance. We also have a Community Life Coordinator who oversees the success for all campers. The Community Life Coordinator implements personalized plans for campers who require extra support to ensure they are setup for success!



What is the best part of Camp at the J?

The best part of Camp at the J is allowing campers to make lifelong friends. We take pride on 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!
