MOST JEWISH CAMPERS FROM THE CHARLESTON AREA ATTEND THE FOLLOWING CAMPS:







Here are our top 5 tips for finding the right camp:

 

  1. Take time to do research – ideally start more than a year in advance (though we can help you find a camp on short notice as well!)

  2. Involve your child, so that they have a vested interest

  3. Talk with the camp director, staff, and other families

  4. Ideally visit camps during the summer while in session; alternatively, consider off-season visits, home visits by camp director or camp events

  5. Evolve as you proceed through the process – and trust your gut feeling!

 

It is never too early or too late to begin camp – including many program options for teens of all ages!
