Camp may be the “great unknown” for first-time campers and their parents. But, once they get to camp, and get into the routine, camp quickly turns from the “great unknown” to a great home away from home. Those final weeks before opening day can sometimes be a struggle, fraught with emotion; but, it’s just a little short-term hardship for a long-term gain: A life enriched and transformed by the opportunity to spend the summer in the safe, caring Jewish community that is Jacobs Camp.
