Testimonial

Camp Kadima is the best! We could not ask for a better camp experience for our children each summer. This will be our third summer at Camp Kadima, and our kids literally count down the days until camp starts each year! The staff is amazing – they always get to know the parents, and they make sure the campers are safe, happy and having lots of fun. Every day is something new, including sports, special activities, field trips, competitions and more. Our kids have made special friendships through Camp Kadima, and their experience there has really enriched all of our lives. We feel so fortunate to have Camp Kadima as our summer home!  -Satisfied parents of 2 happy Camp Kadima campers

My girls, Lilly (age 8) & Sophie (age 5), have been going to Camp Kadima the last five years. They look forward to everything about camp - from the dress up/spirit days, to the field trips and in house activities, and of course the wonderful staff! The camp facilities are amazing - there is so much to do on-site! They have made lasting friendships and and grow every summer from the experiences and relationships made. Summer is Camp Kadima at the DPJCC! -Marcy Hirsch
