Welcome to Camp Yachad where we offer incredible summers for children ages 18 months to 14 years!
Yachad means "together” in Hebrew. Our day camp based at the JCC of Central NJ in Scotch Plains, our travel camp based out of our Springfield site, our Performing Arts specialty camp on the UCVTS campus in Scotch Plains and our new Maccabi Sports Camp at the Wardlaw-Hartridge campus in Edison all provide a memorable, fun and activity-filled experience where children are encouraged to grow as individuals, develop self-esteem, learn new skills and build friendships.
Camp Yachad is a special place where friendships transform into something more – where community comes “together” as family.

Our camp philosophy is tied to Jewish (and universal) values of Gemilut Chasidim (acts of loving kindness), Tikkun Olam (making the world around us better), Rachmanus (respect/compassion), and Rodef Shalom (making peace). We offer some Jewish programming, such as “Jewish Adventures” (learning about Judaism and charity through arts and crafts) and our award-winning “Rockin’ Shabbat with the Shabbatones” on Fridays. At the same time, we are also very proud to be a non-sectarian and diverse camp--open to everyone in our communi
