Tayasim (Hebrew Immersion)

 

OFJCC Palo Alto JCC

J-Camp is incredibly happy to offer another wildly popular, fully immersive Hebrew language traditional-style camp for two 4-week sessions for kids going into kindergarten through sixth grade. We will build a keen sense of community through our classic camp rituals and develop new skills through a variety of activities such as arts and crafts, sports, STEM projects, field games and more!  We may include some local, crowd-conscious field trips pending public health guidelines this summer.

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 of nationality. 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 team comprised of local Hebrew-speaking counselors, and, if possible, Israeli Shlichim, we will create a camp community filled with ruach and enthusiasm for a much-needed fun summer experience!

Activity Highlights:

Innovative Counselor-led Activities: Every day campers will get to participate in a range of fun activities that will help them grow and develop interpersonal and experienced-based skills. These activities will allow our campers to expand their interests and try all kinds of new adventures and awesome camp games!

Wacky Wednesdays:  Every Wednesday we encourage campers to come to camp dressed in the wackiest of ways to show their ruach (spirit). We have extra special programming at camp to allow everyone the opportunity to let out their inner wacky vibes and have tons of classic camp fun.

Water Days: Back by popular demand, as a huge highlight of last summer, get ready for J-Camp's super-fun water days on the field! In addition to water play on the field, we may have swimming activities at the pool pending availability.
