The Camp At The J Story

Camp at the J is a special adventure where friends and memories are made and cherished. The day camp is for children entering kindergarten - 6th grades and gives children the opportunity to have summertime fun in a safe and pleasant environment. The group experience and the program offers campers the chance to enhance their personal development and acquire new skills, as well as enhance their social development by making new friends and learning to be responsible, caring people. The camp also has a unique travel camp for children entering 5th - 8th grades. With professional staff, campers see parts of the county the best possible way...with friends. Campers will spend Mondays at the camp site participating in the camp program and mitzvah projects and four days traveling on amazing day and overnight trips. Camp runs from June 16 - August 8. There is a Pre Camp Option from June 9 - June 13 and two post camp options from August 11 - August 22.

Why We Host Schlichim

"Hosting Shlichim during the summers remains a wonderful experience for our family. Each year we meet dynamic and fascinating young Israelis with whom we maintain contact long after the summer has gone. Our kids are the greatest beneficiaries of the experience, finding in the Shlichim individuals who they come to regard as older siblings. It is an event we look forward to every year with good reason and plan on continuing for years to come."

Connecting with Israel

“Although it was so new, Israel brought upon me a familiar sense of belonging much like what I feel at Camp Chi every summer. The ability to be in a place where one feels so free and proud to be a Jew is a feeling that makes me so proud to be involved in my Jewish heritage.” - Joshua Krawitz, 17, Camp Chi, JCC Chicago
