Our camp offers 95 years of experience in exceptional childcare and community building. Our counselors are carefully selected, trained and supervised, as our specialty staff who are highly qualified and experienced professionals. One of the unique intangibles about Nah-Jee-Wah is the strong sense of belonging that is created as each camper develops his or her personal identity while still experiencing the unique communal cabin life.
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 service, led by song leaders and campers, includes favorite camp songs, skits, creative prayers and stories.
To complement our Shabbat experience, we run a Jewish Heroes program that introduces our campers to biblical, historic and modern Jewish personalities. Their values and achievements are presented through our Saturday programs, evening activities and many of our art and science projects. Our strong connection to Israel fostered by our Israeli campers and staff, enhances the overall Jewish experience for our campers.
Campers share in the magic of our Color War which we call Maccabiah, 4th of July celebration, Israel day, special entertainers and professional guest coaches or players. Campers become part of the Nah-Jee-Wah family and as the end of summer nears, they are counting down the days till their return to our 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 that children can have.
