Our campers really do live 10 months for 2. With over 100 years of experience in exceptional childcare and community building, Camp Nah-Jee-Wah stands alone. Our campers develop a strong sense of belonging that is created both through their personal development at camp and the friendships they make in our amazing group settings. Within days your campers will feel like Nah-Jee-Wah is their very own home away from home.
Campers become part of a Jewish communal experience, where they gain a connection to Israel and our rich Jewish heritage in a fun and relaxed setting. We create an environment that celebrates Jewish identity and encourages our campers to be proud of being Jewish. Shabbat is a special part of this process for both campers and staff. Our unique and spirited Shabbat services are led by song leaders and campers and include favorite camp songs, skits, creative prayers and stories.
To complement our Shabbat experience, we run a Jewish Values program that introduces our campers to values such as friendship, respect, and kindness, all of which are essential to creating the beautiful Nah-Jee-Wah community as we know it. Campers can nominate their peers to win awards for exhibiting these Jewish values throughout the summer!
Additionally, our close connection to Israel is fostered by our Israeli campers and staff, and greatly enhances the overall Jewish experience for our campers.
From the magic of Color War, which we call Maccabiah, to our 4th of July celebration and fireworks, to Israel day, and everything in between, often the highlights of the summer are when the entire camp is brought together as one. Campers become part of the Nah-Jee-Wah family and as the end of summer draws to a close, they already begin the countdown to when they can return to their home away from home.
The heart and soul of camp is the feeling of family and togetherness that the bunk experience provides. Living in a group during the summer is something that cannot be compared to any other experience.
