“JCC camps inspire children to become caring and committed Jewish leaders. At JCC camps, children are empowered to contribute positively to their community and explore their place in the world with a greater sense of confidence and purpose.”
— Tom Rosenberg, President/Chief Executive Officer of American Camp Association
“Camp has had such a meaningful impact on my life because it has taught me so many valuable lessons that I could never learn anywhere else. One of my favorite parts of Tawonga is all the bonding time that we get to spend with our bunkmates. Without Tawonga, my summer wouldn’t be nearly as fun.”
— Sarah P., camper, Camp Tawonga
“At the beginning of the summer my son was afraid of the water, but after a few days of encouragement from his counselors and lifeguards he entered the water and by summer’s end, swimming was his favorite activity. Every day after camp he talked about how much fun he was having when learning how to swim.”
— Michelle G., parent, JCC of Staten Island Lillian Schwartz Day Camp
“Camp is the place where I have met my best friends and have never once felt isolated or alone. Camp truly allows me to express myself and feel comfortable taking risks and challenging myself to find out more about myself. It has given me everything from my first real leadership training to my first real job and responsibilities.”
— Eric S., staff, Pinemere
