Traditional Camps: Grades 3–4

Kesher: Two-Week Camp for Campers Entering Grades 3–4

Campers in Kesher will get to practice decision-making through choice scheduling which will teach them independence and allow them to personalize their camp day. Every two-week session will be a unique experience, full of fun and engaging activities, run by their favorite J-Camp counselors.

Through our elective program, campers can choose their preferred camp track for the two-week session. STEM, sports, arts and crafts and outdoor exploration tracks are offered for elective classes. 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, Kesher will travel off campus for their weekly field trip. Field trips are planned to include fun interactive activities for your camper to enjoy off-site with their friends.

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. Kesher campers will get to enjoy J-Camp sleepovers in Sessions B and D. 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!
