Camp Yachad Still Accepting Campers
Do your children still need plans for the summer? Camp Yachad of the JCC of Central New Jersey is still accepting applications for the camp, which begins on June 23.
The Camp philosophy is tied to Jewish (and universal) values of Gemilut Chasidim (acts of loving kindness), Tikkun Olam (making the world around us better), Rachmanus (respect/compassion), and Rodef Shalom (making peace). Camp Yachad is non-sectarian and open to everyone in the community.
The JCC offers the following camps:
- Traditional Day Camp located at the JCC of Central New Jersey in Scotch Plains-18 Months to 9 years old.
- Teen Travel Camps located at the JCC of Central New Jersey in Springfield (Trips include Day Trips, Baseball Games, Broadway Shows, Extended Overnights, Trips Out-of-State) 4th-8th Grade.
- Maccabi Sports Camp located at the Wardlaw-Hartridge campus in Edison 1st to 4th Grade.
- Performing Arts Camp-5th-8th Grade located at the UCVTS campus in Scotch Plains
“We want our campers to try new things and have a sense of community and be part of a family,” said Jodi Hotra, Camp Co-Director.
