With over 25 elective offerings in arts, athletics, outdoor adventure, waterfront, and STEM, Nah-Jee-Wah inspires campers to explore their interests, discover their Jewish identity and connection to Israel, and break out of their comfort zone. With daily activities, frequent special programs, Jewish customs, and camp traditions that bring everyone together, the sense of community at Camp Nah-Jee-Wah is more than just a phrase, it’s a connection between campers that materializes in high fives, excited cheers, and hugs when you need them most.

Discover Camp Nah-Jee-Wah

At Camp Nah-Jee-Wah, we go to sleep dreaming about the adventures that await us the following day and welcome the sun with excitement as it peeks through the trees each morning.

Elective Offerings

Campers participate in six daily activities, two of which they choose themselves (three if they’re entering 6th grade!) based on their individual needs and interests. During each of these activities, campers receive excellent instruction and learn new skills while having fun.
