Camp Mountain Chai is the realization of a dream of a number of committed leaders in the San Diego Jewish community. After years of searching, the current facility in Angelus Oaks was purchased in 2004 by the Jewish Community Camp and Retreat Center, Inc. and Camp Mountain Chai officially opened its doors to Jewish children in 2006.
Camp Mountain Chai expands and enriches Jewish identity by establishing an atmosphere of knowledge and love for Jewish culture, traditions and religion. Through sports, arts, outdoor adventure and aquatics, campers build lifelong friendships, independence and self worth. At Camp Mountain Chai, our campers and staff enrich their Jewish identities in a community where Jewish tradition and heritage are an integral part of daily living.
CMC provides a warm and caring family atmosphere. Our highly trained staff works hard to maintain this safe, nurturing environment for our campers. Campers develop a sense of community through the many forms of group activities offered throughout the day. At the same time, each camper’s individuality is also honored and respected. Our campers are given the special and unique opportunity to experience personal growth, independence, and an increased sense of self-esteem and friendship building in a healthy and supportive environment.
