Summer Camp for Children (entering 1st-6th grade)
Campers are enthusiastically welcomed for an exciting summer of fun, friendship, and learning at Camp at the J! Campers participate in specialized activities developed by counselors and directors in five two-week blocks of time throughout the summer. Campers explore science, nature, technology, acting, writing, along with sports and multiple field trips.
An Aleph Group classroom option is available for campers who are entering 1st grade. This gives them a home-based experience while still participating in everything Camp at the J has to offer. We also have our Repair the World Program for 7th and 8th graders and the Counselors-in-Training (CIT) Program for high school students!
Our campers have access to:
Outdoor playing fields - Gymnasium - Indoor pool - Art room – Auditorium
Repair the World Group (7th-8th Grade)
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. Repair the World seeks to take action in our immediate community to bring awareness to particular causes and agents of social development. Through Repair the World, students learn about the significance of volunteerism and the positive results that it yields through community service projects, charity events, and fundraising efforts. Repair the World students are also invited to take part in all that Summer Camp at the J has to offer!
Counselor in Training (CIT) Group (9th-10th Grade)
As a member of the Counselors-in-Training (CIT) Program for the Summer Camp at the J, 9th and 10th graders have the opportunity to get experience as a summer camp counselor, while also helping to create a better community in York. Every week, teens work hands-on with groups of campers ranging from 1st through 6th grade in all manner of activity. In conjunction with a trained camp counselor, CIT’s assist counselors in planning and carrying out activities for campers, including arts, science, sporting events, and community service projects. CIT’s coordinate their efforts with our Repair the World group, who devise and produce camp-wide projects to help the greater good within our immediate community. Once a week, CIT’s meet with guest speakers such as state representatives and non-profit organization leaders to give them a better understanding of the world around them.
