The Camp @ JCC East Bay (formerly Camp Tzofim) Story

Berkeley & Oakland Summer Camps Camps for All Ages and Interests At camp, children can express themselves in a supportive environment that balances flexibility with structure. We get messy, silly, and serious about having fun. We sing, we dance, and we explore our environment. And we always focus on building friendships and expanding interests. Camp celebrates community-based Jewish values, and welcomes campers of all backgrounds. *Extended care is available. JCC Summer Camp in Oakland is a Jewish day camp that emphasizes self-discovery and experiential learning. We provide kids with the opportunity to learn, grow, and have fun in a nurturing camp environment. Transportation from Berkeley to Oakland is available. JCC Berkeley Studio Camps provide kids with the opportunity to learn, grow, and have fun in a nurturing camp environment that offers them a chance to focus on their favorite activities all day. Children of all ages can try out a new interest or dig deeper into the activities they already love. Led by experts in their fields, each camp offers a small-group setting and individual attention. This year, we’re giving you even more opportunity to customize your camper’s experience. Choose from adventures in cooking, engineering, Spanish, fashion, and more as you design a summer that your camper will never forget! JCC Vacation Camp is in! This spring, campers can spend their school break enjoying their favorite activities like music, art, science, field trips, and, of course, Gaga! Fill their vacation with new friendships, new interests, and plenty of adventure with the JCC East Bay's long-running break 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
