The J Camp Omaha Story

For campers who want a well-rounded day camp experience, J Camp provides a little bit of everything. Based mostly outdoors in our Day Camp Pavilion, activities include arts and crafts, sports, nature, cooking, science, Israeli culture and team building. Along with trying new things with one's camp group, each camper, second grade and above gets a choice activity (chugim) each week, where they participate in special programming like ceramics, team sports, cooking and more! Kindergarten and first grade groups participate in swim lessons three times per week (unless otherwise noted). Each week all campers will experience an off-site field trip, an on-site first trip or an undernight.

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
