Pioneers | Grades 4-7
The Pioneers self-guided schedule keeps the experienced camper asking for more. Children create a personalized summer by choosing a Track choice of arts, sports or adventure, which meets three times per week, plus Specialty choices, including competitive and individual athletics, performance, fine arts, science and more, which meet twice per week.
Pioneer campers are in the pool for free swim every day. Additionally, Grade 4 campers have swim lessons three times per week and Grade 5-7 campers have swim enrichment rotations, including mermaiding, diving, junior life guarding, water polo and more, twice a week.
There’s an all-unit field trip each week, which adds to the fun. Plus, Grade 5-7 campers go on one Track choice field trip each week as well.
CIT | Grade 8-10
CITs will work with a camp group and counselor(s) to help make camp a fun place by assisting with daily camp activities, while serving as a role model for younger campers. Throughout the summer, CITs will have training opportunities designed to help develop their leadership and communication skills. Our preference is for CITs to commit to a 4- week session.
Try Chi 2021 has been postponed to summer 2022 due to staffing shortages being felt by camps around the country.
Try Chi is the best way to get a taste of quality Jewish overnight camping. Campers meet new friends, and live in cabins with experienced, caring counselors who help them feel comfortable right away. They’ll feel the spirit of camp with cookouts, campfires, sing-alongs and great evening programs.
