The JCC Ranch Camp Story

Ranch Camp is a kehillah (community) that inspires campers, staff, and families to strengthen their Jewish identity, connect with the natural world, and develop life-long friendships. Ranch Camp offers a summer adventure when campers engage fully, live excited for each moment, and are encouraged to defy their limits and define themselves. Located in the Black Forest, Ranch Camp has 388 acres of stunning, forested land covered in miles of trails, campsites, wildflowers, and unique boulders and caves. At the heart of camp, campers live, eat, sleep and play in our updated facilities designed to immerse campers in the beauty of the Colorado outdoors.

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
