Hebrew Immersion Camp
Israel always has been an important part of our summer camp. With programming, celebrations and Israeli counselors, we want to bring a fun and meaningful taste of Israel to camp.
JCC Day Camps will continue to elevate this Israel component with a unique Hebrew immersion program for campers in grades K-4. We are proud to offer this program, now in its third year, which gives children a totally immersive Hebrew language experience!
In the immersion program, campers engage in the full schedule – swimming, sports, arts and crafts, and more – learning to understand and speak Hebrew naturally, by listening to and engaging in daily conversation with their counselors and peers. From the moment camp begins, all aspects of the day will be conducted solely in Hebrew, giving kids an opportunity to gain proficiency as they participate in the great activities that make our camp exceptional.
There are many benefits to this program. Notably, it helps children develop important learning skills and it is the perfect start for any child who will continue with a Jewish/Hebrew education, whether in a day school or Sunday school, or who wants to establish a deeper connection to Judaism.
This program requires some Hebrew language experience and is made possible by the generous support and guidance of the Areivim Philanthropic Group.
Dates: June 20-July 15 (Session 1); July 18-August 12 (Session 2)
