Why We Love Camp - Monday, June 8, 2020

Camp season might be the best time of the year - sun shining, no school, trips and all our Jericho friends in one place! What could be better than that? We think very little - which is why we decided to create a list of the 5 things we love most about camp - from campers and staff alike. 

1. New and Old Friends 
One of the best things about camp is that each week there are new friends that come together and within only a few days we are all best friends. 
2. Trying New Things  

Camp is filled with new things, from trips to creative art projects to adventures. Every day there is something new to try with so many amazing people. Camp is a safe environment where kids can try new things, learn new skills, gain confidence and work as a team to accomplish amazing things. 

3. Independence  

Camp is a place where kids can develop who they are and grow more independent. They can manage choices and decisions in a safe, nurturing environment and develop new interests. They can explore their own identities and develop a deeper sense of self.  We love to see how over the summer our campers become so independent. 

4. The Camp Leaders  

From the Leaders in Training to the Camp Counselors we have the best camp leaders anyone could ask for. Each person on the team is there to have fun and learn together. We love that our camp counselors and LITs are always taking part in each and every activity that happens at camp. 

5. The Memories  

The memories that come from the Ultimate Summer Camp are ones that will last with you for years to come. From water fights with counselors and amazing field trips, to your new best friend, the memories you make at camp will last through the coldest days in February for years to come. 


If you haven't registered for summer camp this is the perfect time to do so. With all the amazing things that happen at camp it’s no wonder we look forward to it all year long!
