ACTIVITIES

Full Schedule

Swimming

Marks JCH uses the American Red Cross Learn-to-Swim curriculum. The program consists of six comprehensive levels that teach kids of all ages and abilities how to swim skillfully and safely. Each level includes training in basic water safety, and all aquatic and safety skills are taught in a logical progression.

Creative and Performing Arts

Children express themselves through art, music, and theater. Under the caring guidance of professional specialists children use the nature around them for artistic inspiration and variety of materials.

Sports

Focusing on developing and strengthening various athletic skills while being a good team-player through clinics, instruction, and healthy tournaments. Soccer, basketball, kickball, Israeli gaga and zooball are some of the sports campers have to look forward to.

Cooking

Using fresh ingredients to prepare nutrient-rich healthy snacks, campers will learn all about healthy eating habits and will eagerly show off their chef skills.

Archery

A unique sport that can be enjoyed by anyone regardless of previous experience is one of the biggest highlights at camp. Archery’s structure and focus on calm precision offer an opportunity for campers to excel in a different kind of sport, and to gain skills that are applied in many other activities.

STEM

Through hands-on robotics projects and science experiments, campers learn outside the classroom learning about their surrounding world. Campers learn about astronomy, chemistry, physics, earth science, and animal life cycles.

Summer Learning* – new for 2021

In order to provide the best possible support for students after a very challenging year, we are partnering with Catapult Learning to provide a summer learning program to help compensate for the COVID-related disruption of learning many students have experienced. The focus of this program will be learning gains in literacy and math.

* Generously funded by UJA-Federation

Jewish Values and Israeli Culture

Our program integrates unique aspects of our shared heritage and Israeli culture into camp life through an immersive, experiential curriculum. Israeli emissaries, schlichim who join us at camp bring Israeli life, culture, and Hebrew language to all campers. Campers experience weekly activities, Friday Shabbat celebrations, and special events.

Hiking + Nature

Campers will explore the great outdoors through guided nature hikes on the campgrounds’ adventure trails, while learning important concepts such as taking care of the Earth and participating in team building activities.
