We offer a simple drop-off option for our Kehila, Ruach, and Kef campers. Mondays, you will be required to walk your camper in to check-in. Tuesday through Friday, you will have two options.
Option 1: drop your camper off from your car to our counselors curbside, or Option 2: park and walk your child to the Green. Either way, we will greet your campers with a smile and by name!

Simcha campers should be walked by the parent to the their room daily.

Lunch + Snacks

Bring a vegetarian (meat and shellfish-free) lunch, two snacks, and a water bottle. 

Vegetarian meals can be difficult to plan if you are not used to it. Here are some food ideas for kids who are used to ham-and-cheese for lunch. Please note that we are not able to provide microwaves or refrigerators for camper lunches.

  • PB&J sandwich
  • Bagels and cheese
  • Tortillas with cheese
  • Hummus with crackers/veggies
  • Vegetarian chicken nuggets
  • Rice cakes and spread
  • Grilled cheese
  • Yogurt and granola
    More veggie lunch ideas here!

Campers will also have the option of purchasing kosher lunches on a weekly basis from Cafe at the J. Order forms will be available online and will be attached to your emailed camp confirmation. Camp does not provide snacks.
