The Camp B’Yachad Story

A 12 day experience that will change the life of a teenager! The camp model is a combination of activities and discussions, reflections and creative expression, role-playing games and group work, all focused on exploring the Jewish Identity of a teenager in a supportive, secular environment. The program is balanced with sports, obstacle courses and zip lines, art and music, evening activities and dance parties. A collaborative project of Marks JCH, Shorefront YM-YWHA, and Jewish Child Care Association Bukharian Teen Lounge, this project is made possible with generous funding from the Genesis Philanthropy Group, UJA-Federation of New York & Foundation For Jewish Camp

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."

- Soberman Family, The Jack and Pat Kay Centre Camp, Prosserman JCC

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
