Plus time in our awesome swimming pool, a chance to learn about Judaism, time with cabin mates, a visit to the canteen, spirited song sessions, and the opportunity to interact with the rest of hte camp community, including our older campers (some they may know from home) and our great staff members.
Fun-Filled Nights: Every night features a different, creative evening program. Fun & games, unusual adventures, amazing challenges - these are just a few of the element that make up Olim evening program.s Programs such as an all-camp scavenger hunt, a Magical Mystery Tour of Israel (run by our Israeli staff), Who Stole the Jacobs Magic, and A Night in the Art Room. And, don't forget Messy Night! Plus Olim campers get to spend two Shabbats at Jacobs - and, ask any Jacobs camper, and they will tell you Shabbat is their favorite day of the week!
Jacobs Counselors Make Everything Fun: Our most caring counselors are assigned to Olim bunks to provide a positive, nurturing experience. We can't explain how they do it, but Olim counselors make every moment of the day so much fun! Each day they outdo themselves - with their energy & enthusiasm, with their love & caring, with their commitment to insuring that every Olim camper has the best summer. It's worth coming to Jacobs just to be with them.
After summer is over, Olim Campers consistently talk about the great friends they made, how they were able to try out so many things they had never done before, and their fantastic counselors.
