Why Jewish Camp?

Written By: Camp Judaea

Why Jewish Camp?

From the Foundation for Jewish Camp Website www.jewishcamp.org:

Camp presents your child the opportunity to mature and gain independence, to learn social skills, and explore personal interests. At Jewish camp, daily activities are often enriched by Jewish values and the culture of Judaism.

Whether they’re telling stories in their bunks, learning about the environment, or playing kickball, campers explore what Judaism means to them in a safe, nurturing, and fun environment.

At Jewish camp, children will not only develop confidence and social skills; they discover a deep-seated and profound sense of what it means to them to be a Jew.

Campers Become Leaders
The impact of Jewish camp doesn’t end on the last day of summer. Children with pivotal Jewish camp experiences are more likely to become adults who value their Jewish heritage, support Jewish causes, and take on leadership roles in their communities.

Anecdotal and statistical evidence confirm that children who attend Jewish summer camps are more likely than those who did not to join a synagogue or a JCC, support their local federations and become leaders in the community, whether as rabbis, educators, professionals or lay leaders.
