The Weinstein JCC Teen Camps Story

Our teen camps are for youth in grades 7-12 and are geared towards helping campers develop leadership abilities through service, adventure, learning and fun.

Peer Campers will participate in the full camp Hilbert experience while working directly with a child with special needs. As a Peer Camper, you will have the opportunity to learn valuable skills and the ability to work alongside our dynamic staff. Teen volunteers play a vital role in building a fantastic summer for a camper with special needs!

Voices Together Peer Camper:

Leadership Travel Institute (LTI):
Grades: 8 & 9
LTI is two weeks of travel, service, adventue, learning, fun, and growth that develops the leadership skills and abilities of our oldest campers. Service, adventure, and personal growth are the focus while campers make a difference with community service projects, enjoy a day at Busch Gardens, challenge themselves on a high ropes course, go whitewater rafting, and participate in a variety of leadership based workshops and activities. We’ll also explore the peaks, pools, glades, and waterfalls of Shenandoah National Park on a three night camping trip.

Ganim Volunteer Corps (GVC):
Grades: 7 – 12
GVC is designed to help participants meet their schools’ community service requirements while still having an exciting, fun and meaningful time at camp. Each participant will be placed in a Camp Ganim group to assist the counselors and will have the opportunity to learn valuable skills working with young campers.
