Welcome to Our Camp Community We are Camp Keff (fun in Hebrew) and we know that a safe, nurturing summer camp experience has the power to be transformative for your young child. For more than 60 years, children have thrived at summer camp at the PJCC. Keff (fun in Hebrew) is the cornerstone of our philosophy and program, and there is so much more that makes our Camp Keff the best choice for your child. Camp Keff has been described as irresistibly engaging. Our curriculum ignites imagination and nurtures resilience. Camp is what we do. We love it because we love our campers, who get our very best so that they have their very best summer ever. Summer begins and a different kind of spirit takes hold at Camp Keff. Our experienced, professional camp staff give their all to the program— they help make summer full of your child’s best days. Camp Keff campers gain confidence, learn to make good choices, and develop their social skills. They grow in compassion and caring, and are encouraged to celebrate self discovery. Research has proven what we’ve known for years: kids need camp. Kids need Camp Keff. Join our camp family this summer and give your children the gift of Keff — Best Summer Ever! See you at camp! L’Shalom In peace, The Camp Keff Preschool Team Lisa, Stephanie, Liz, Melanie, and Rosalina
