Making Memories one Summer at a Time


Camp J @ Shalom Orlando

Here at Camp J, we're in the business of making memories.

Our goal at Camp J is to create memorable summers for campers by infusing our values of Community, Inclusion, and Spirit into everything we do – from our morning cheers to our weekly special events, each activity is intentionally crafted to fit the needs of our campers. 

Our Values

  • Camp J is all about creating an infectious spirit (Ruach) that will have your child beaming with joy. Through daily cheers and songs, we promote an environment filled with lighthearted competition and togetherness, ensuring a fun and positive experience.
  • Camp J is more than just a camp; it's a close-knit community (Kehilah). We start and end each day with heartfelt gatherings that foster strong connections. Campers are grouped by age and create smaller communities within their groups. Then, at our weekly Camp J-style Shabbat celebrations, we strengthen not only our camp family but also our ties to the broader Jewish community.

At Camp J, inclusivity (Kalul) is a core value. Our well-trained staff is equipped to welcome campers of all abilities and backgrounds, ensuring that every child can find their place and thrive at our camp. Your child truly belongs at Camp J, where we prioritize their well-being and happiness

Our Mission

At Camp J, we’re all about making summers memorable and meaningful. Our mission is to use power of play to inspire our campers to embrace our values of community, spirit, and inclusion

Our camp is rooted in Jewish values and enriched with a diverse curriculum that includes exciting Central Florida adventures and beloved Camp J traditions at the JCC. By attending Camp J, campers gain a sense of independence, take risks, learn to problem-solve with their peers, and engage in activities they love – all in a supportive environment. Here, your child can explore their athletic skills, nurture their creativity, bask in the sun, and enjoy a whole lot more.


But what truly sets us apart are our core values: Ruach (Spirit), Kehilah (Community), and Kalul (Inclusion). We create a lively, close-knit community where daily cheers and songs foster unity. Our Camp J gatherings and Shabbat celebrations strengthen bonds within our camp family and with the wider Jewish community.


We’re also committed to helping campers grow as individuals. Our approach to teaching Jewish culture is not just informative but also engaging and fun. With the help of Shinshinim from Israel, we bring Israeli culture and Jewish customs to life through games, songs, and real-life stories.


Furthermore, we’re proud to be one of the only ACA Accredited summer camp in the Orlando area. This accreditation ensures that we follow the best practices in American summer camps, giving you confidence in the quality of care we provide.

Your child looks forward to those special two summer months all year long, and we’re here to make them truly exceptional. Send them to Camp J, where they can have fun, make friends, and learn valuable life skills in a warm and welcoming environment.
