J Camps opens in a few short weeks. We are getting excited about everything that we have to offer this summer, and we cannot wait to welcome you and your children.
One of the many things that makes J Camps special is the diverse population of our campers and staff. The world that we live in is ever-changing, and the needs of our campers and staff constantly evolve. The social and emotional well-being of our campers and staff is as important to us as their physical safety here at camp.
Last summer, we contracted with a psychologist on a part-time basis to help us on this front and felt that even though the help was limited, it made an important impact.
The J invites you to two free screenings of this important film.
A famous story in the Talmud teaches about a gentile who came before the great Shammai and said: “I will convert [to Judaism] if you can teach me the entire Torah while I stand on one foot.” Shammai pushed the man aside with a ruler that was in his hand. The man then came before the great Hillel [with the same proposition], and Hillel converted him, saying, “What is hateful to you, do not do to your neighbor, that is the entire Torah, the rest is just commentary, now go and learn.”
Every summer, we, as parents, have to make choices about the experiences that we want for our children. We look at the 12 weeks that our children will not be in school and think “How can I make this time meaningful and fun for my kids?”
There are so many different choices: family vacations, spending time with extended family, staying at home, volunteering, going to work with a parent, going to residential camp and attending day camp.
