J-Camp is proud to continue offering the wildly popular, fully immersive,
Hebrew language traditional-style camp, with programming designed for rising
kinder all the way to our newly added 5th and 6th grade group. Hebrew immersion
in summer camp encourages Hebrew language proficiency and promotes pride in
Jewish identity in a nurturing, creative and fun way. We welcome campers with
any level of Hebrew knowledge, from zero experience to 100% fluency, regardless
The camp is structured in 4-week sessions to promote meaningful interactions,
enable children to develop their speaking and comprehension skills, and build a
strong sense of community. At J-Camp, it is possible to learn Hebrew in a
fun-filled way, while practicing the language as part of everyday life. With a
staff team comprised primarily of Israeli-born shlichim and counselors, Tayasim
is sure to provide your camper with an authentic and meaningful experience.
Every four-week session will be a unique experience, full of fun and engaging
activities. Counselors will encourage creative expression through arts and crafts,
STEM, outdoor exploration, sports, cooking and Jewish culture. Campers will also
enjoy recreational swim two times a week at our OFJCC aquatics facility, in the
heated indoor pool with counselors facilitating fun activities.
Every Wednesday, Tayasim will travel off campus for their weekly field trip.
Field trips are planned with campers in mind, and will build as they gain new
skills and become more adventurous.
Every Friday is filled with non-stop excitement! Campers will begin their
Fridays with outrageously fun All-Camp Events, on the field at our Freidenrich
Community Park. Great new All-Camp event themes include Summer Splash Zone and
Best of J-Camp Celebration! Following the All-Camp Event, we will join together
as a J-Camp mishpacha (family) and enjoy a kosher-style hot dog BBQ in the OFJCC town
J-Camp will celebrate the end of every week with performances, slideshows and
Shabbat songs in the Schultz Cultural Arts Hall.
Tayasim kinder campers will have the opportunity to participate in our J-Camp sleepover during the last week of camp. Sleepovers are a great way for your
camper to bond with their friends and counselors as they participate in fun
activities such as movie in the park, glow in the dark party, making s'mores and
Tayasim 3rd through 6th grade campers will have a sleepover to participate in each
Please Note: Tayasim will be split in groups by grade, and depending on the
number of kids at each grade level, there will be times the group will be all
together and separate.
