Summer 2020 Offers Camp-In-A-Box For At-Home Camp Experience

While we are unable to host our traditional J Summer Camp in 2020, we remain connected to families through a FREE outreach program, Camp-In-A-Box. These special boxes contain activities, traditions, and fun for campers to enjoy at home this summer, including STEM, arts, sports, nature, values-based, and recreational activities. This will be combined with online content.

Invest in Your J

Your investment empowers us to meet the ever-changing needs of our center and helps provide quality, accessible programming and a safe, inclusive environment that inspires and supports meaningful connections throughout our community. There are several ways you can contribute:

  • A general gift will go where funding is most needed.
  • A gift towards one of our endowment or program funds will help to create an ongoing legacy.
  • A gift in honor or in memory of a loved one. A tribute card will be sent with acknowledgment of your gift.

Your generosity will help support our mission of enriching lives and connecting to our Jewish identity, now and into the future.
