The Camp Ruach at Asheville JCC Story

The Camp Ruach formula is fun through friendship! Camp Ruach is an extraordinary community, created each summer at the Asheville JCC. Guided by our highly trained counselors, campers build lifelong friendships, develop their self-confidence and support each other’s growth. Whether they are here for one week, two weeks, or the whole summer, Camp Ruach campers come away having grown and changed, carrying a newfound sense of confidence and self-assurance. Here, everyone is celebrated! Feeling valued and supported, campers become strong, confident community members while gaining new abilities and having fulfilling experiences. Our energetic Camp Ruach staff works and plays with our campers to ensure that they feel safe and nurtured as they have the time of their lives!

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
