Traditional Camps: Grades 1–2

Tova: Two-Week Camp for Campers Entering Grades 1–2

Tova is designed to give your camper the chance to begin creating their own camp experience. Campers will be able to select the activity of their choice during various times of the week. Every two-week session will be a unique experience, full of fun and engaging activities, run by your favorite J-Camp counselors. Counselors will encourage creative expression through arts and crafts, STEM, outdoor exploration, sports, cooking and Jewish culture. Tova campers will also enjoy a few special guests throughout the summer.

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, Tova will travel off campus for a weekly fun and engaging field trip from nearby attractions such as the Magical Bridge Playground to adventurous theme parks. Field trips are planned with young 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 square.

J-Camp will celebrate the end of every week with performances, slideshows and Shabbat songs in the Schultz Cultural Arts Hall. 

 

Tova campers will have the opportunity to participate in our Session B and D Sleepovers. 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 more!
