Summer Camp Chaverim 2022 will be here before we know it!
We are so excited to kick off Summer Camp Chaverim 2022!
We strive to provide the following opportunities for your child:
Health and safety is our number one priority at Camp Chaverim. We are committed to providing every camper at the UJC with a fun and exciting summer experience, while working to ensure each camper's safety.
We are dedicated to creating a summer camp environment that encourages positive physical, mental, social, and emotional health for all our campers and staff.
All ACA and Virginia Department of Health recommendations are closely followed and periodically reviewed.
Camp Chaverim is not just an ordinary day camp. Camp Chaverim is a place where your child can gain confidence, make long-lasting connections, be creative, try new things and become a part of our UJC family. As a Jewish day camp, we infuse our camp with values, traditions and holiday celebrations. A summer camp day will consist of activities including arts and crafts, swimming, athletics and a weekly Shabbat experience. Our goal is to give your child a summer to remember! Camp Chaverim is a proud member of the American Camping Association.
Your child's safety is our number one priority. We will implement plans based on the recommendations by the state of Virginia, the American Camp Association, and the CDC. Our program will participate in mitigation practices such as daily screenings, mask wearing, social distancing, increased handwashing, and frequent cleaning and disinfecting. As the summer gets closer, additional information will be sent to parents/guardians via email.
Camp Chaverim utilizes a mobile communication tool called MyCampApp. This wonderful app is specifically designed for our summer camp program. We will be able to share photos, notes, updates, and videos privately with our camp families. Parents/guardians can also easily stay in contact with staff as well as utilize the app to update your child(ren)'s camp needs.
You can also call the UJC front office with questions or concerns:
Before they begin working at camp, our staff undergo multi-day professional training which includes review of COVID 19 protocols, behavior and group management, CPR/First Aid, and overview of UJC campus policies.
Bring the basics: dairy lunch, water bottle, sunscreen (please apply prior to arriving at camp each morning), hat, swim suit, towel, and a change of clothes. All items should be labeled with your camper's name. A more detailed list of items will be included in the parent handbook and will be sent to families before the first day of camp.
