Every child is BORN TO CAMP and deserves the opportunity to take risks and accept new challenges. Camp is where we grow and develop these crucial life skills.
Camp is also a place where we’re FREE TO BE YOU+ME by slowing down, taking a deep breath, exploring our 3 custom-built natural playgrounds and getting DIRTY! Be silly…laugh…have fun…and make new friends in our safe, nurturing environment.J Camps offers a unique experience where you can choose your “tour” options. While we encourage you to pick a single camp for an entire session where you can build stronger bonds with new friends, you have the opportunity to select individual weeks to check out a different camp.
Our staff is amazing! Many counselors were J campers, and we are all committed to helping your child grow.

From the director

Summer 2019 – my 42nd year as the Camp Chai Director, but that doesn’t include the years I worked (and met my husband) at my sleep away camp or my years as a camper starting at age 5. Many have heard me say this – I believe that camp is the most important experience a child can ever have. Why? Because it is at camp, and especially at our J camps, that we provide more than fun – we teach life skills, share values, listen, nurture, care, build community, inspire, and more. We are the place for friendship, belonging, growing, teamwork, independence, and even RISK. We are a place for the whole family forever. “You may leave camp, but camp will never leave you.” Become a part of our family this year!
