At the end of each summer, we participate in the Foundation for Jewish Camps’ Customer Satisfaction Insight Survey that provides a look at what parents and campers really think about their camp experience. This year, we learned that Jacobs Camp topped the charts in almost every category! In several categories, we earned the best ratings in the country out of the 90 North American Jewish Overnight Camps that participated. 

The most important question on the survey asked, “What is the likelihood you would recommend Jacobs Camp to family members or friends?”, and 100% of respondents answered “would recommend”! We could not be more proud of our results.   

It is easy to see what sets Jacobs Camp apart. We attribute this success to our core values:

  •  Welcome Home Hospitality We say “Welcome Home” and we mean it! New and returning campers alike are welcome at Jacobs Camp. We truly are a home away from home where every camper can connect with new and old friends.
  • Culture of Gratitude Our culture of gratitude means that we value every camper and staff member for being themselves,  and for their contribution to our community. Jacobs Camp is a safe space where campers feel comfortable and encouraged to take risks and be themselves. This leads to trying new activities, new food, and new experiences, all in the loving and supportive environment created by our amazing staff. 
  • Strong Sense of Community Throughout the summer at Jacobs Camp, a strong sense of community connects our campers and staff to each other and to the generations of Jacobs Campers who came before them. At Jacobs, campers love being Jewish, which connects us even more strongly. We meet children where they are in their Jewish journey to ensure that every camper feels comfortable.  

 We are so grateful to you – our campers and families, our generous donors, and our community supporters.  You have all helped Jacobs Camp be one of the best Jewish Summer camps in the country and we could not do it without your support!

Jacobs Camp is My Home I have always thought about a certain question for the past year or so. Why do I want to go back to camp? And the answer is Jacobs is my home! When I think about it, it always can guarantee a smile because I can recall so many happy memories....
