Camp Chai is the cclientuploads/_SummerCamp2014/header/camp-chai-nightsin-dallas.pngamp for every child who wants to do it all and to be part of a special community that spans generations.  Camp Chai campers, staff and families believe in the power of camp to make a difference in the lives of our children and our community.   Every minute is packed with experiences to create fun and growth–swimming, sports, creative arts, singing, talking, games, sharing, nature, planning, exploring, playing and so much more!   Camp Chai is more than all the activities – it is about belonging and being part of tradition.   We live our Camp Code of Ruach (strength of spirit), Ometz Lev (courage), Shayachut (belonging) and Lamidah (Learning) in all that we do.

DAILY HIGHLIGHTS

Campers are part of tribes divided by grades and boys and girls and the tribes make up units – Adat Chalutzim (kindergarten), Adat Chaverim (1st grade), Adat Shalom (2nd & 3rd grades), Adat Giborim (4th – 6th grades).  Activities are geared to the needs and abilities of each age group – schedules vary but every camper has these experiences during typical days at camp.
