Summer Camp Counselors Arriving on the Virginia Peninsula!

Camp Chaverim, the only Jewish Day Camp on the Virginia Peninsula, has been hosting Israeli Counselors, Schlichim, for more than 15 years! Every summer, we hire two Israeli counselors from the Jewish Agency for Israel.

These young Israelis (usually age 19-22) join our summer staff to represent their country and educate campers about Israeli culture.

They bring a wealth of knowledge and training to Camp Chaverim. Last year the campers learned daily Hebrew words, experienced a ginormous Israel relief map, learned Israeli songs and danced to music and had fun, fun, fun.

Host a Counselor and bring a little bit of Israel into your home this Summer!

Would you like the opportunity to strengthen your connection to Israel, make new friends, and do a wonderful mitzvah at the same time?

Our two Israeli counselors will make wonderful home guests who are excited to experience local American culture as they are to share stories of their life in Israel with your family. Won’t you be a host family?

One week hosting begins Friday June 30th and ends August 20th.

If you are interested in hosting, or if you know of another family who may be interested, please contact Jenn R. Meyers | 757.930.1422 |

Please email your date preference and if you would like to host the male, Yarden or female, Rotem young adult or both. Thank you!

June 30 – July 7

July 7 – July 14

July 28-Aug 4
