Aleph Camp (Grades K-1)

June 3 – August 16
Members $229 | Non-Members $239
Sibling Discount $225

Our youngest camp will give campers an opportunity to get a real taste of what camp means while providing them with activities, counselors, field trips, and an overall setting that is more geared toward their needs. This is a fantastic way to familiarize campers with all of the great aspects of a school-age camp in a smaller, home-based setting.

Get ready for a summer filled with fun, social action, and community leadership! Loosely based on the Hebrew saying, “Tikkun Olam,” Repair the World gives 7th and 8th-grade students the chance to implement and accomplish service projects of all kinds. RTW seeks to take action in our community to bring awareness to certain causes and programs. Through RTW, students learn about the significance of volunteerism and the positive results that it yields through community service projects, charity, and fundraising. RTW participants are also invited to take part in many of the activities that Camp at the J has to offer!
