Jewish day camp provides flexible option for interfaith families
Jewish day camp can be an especially good fit for interfaith families. The Foundation for Jewish Camp and InterfaithFamily coauthored an article outlining the unique qualities that attract interfaith families and included a quote from an In the City Camp family!
Many Jewish day camps offer short (one or two weeks) and flexible (all different points throughout the summer) sessions so that your child can try out the experience without a serious time or monetary commitment. You could even try multiple camp programs in one summer. You might quickly find, however, that you’ve found the right fit for your family, and you’ll want to stay put.
One parent from Georgia shared with us, “We love In the City Camp!! Our 6-year-old daughter had the best experience: amazing counselors, awesome staff and the campers are just good kids. The experience Eileen and her staff give is empowering, fun and family-oriented. I’ve never seen our daughter happier. The breadth of activities, the encouragement of the counselors to get kids to try new stuff, the field trips and the overall sense of community is unparalleled. As a Jewish-Catholic family that hasn’t quite decided our path toward religious education, the exposure to Judaism was a perfect taste for our daughter without being over the top.”
