Camp Yofi is the name for our traditional camp at the LJCC. In Hebrew, yofi literally means beautiful, but in conversational Hebrew it is frequently used as an exclamation meaning “that’s good, great, beautiful”, “Yofi”!

The goal of our Camp YOFI is to provide a happy, meaningful and enriching experience for our campers. We want to help children grow and feel good about themselves. We believe that kids can mature emotionally through their participation in a group with an interested, accepting role model.
Skills acquisition, whether it is in art, sports, crafts, or drama gives a child confidence. For example, a child who learns how to swim by the end of the summer has achieved a great accomplishment.
Creating also gives children satisfaction. A group that puts on a skit or makes a new crafts project feels positive about what they are doing.
Decision-making is an integral part of emotional maturity and camp life. We begin the process of teaching decision-making by giving children choices. We have found that the most enjoyable and successful programs are those that the children chose to create.
Group problem solving helps children grow. Some problems are individual and are handled by the counselor with the camper alone. Others are group problems and we involve the group in finding its own solution. This process of discussion is important for the group’s development. We encourage expression of feelings, both in the group and individually.
We work with children through activities. Our programs include swimming, Judaics, sports, arts and crafts, nature, singing, drama, dance, Israeli Culture, special themed activities, shows and trips. These are the means by which our campers have fun, grow and feel comfortable with themselves in our camp.

Program: Your children will awaken each day looking forward to camp. Your children will be placed in groups according to their grade, but participate in some daily activities with other groups. This integrated structure allows your children to experience a sense of belonging within their group, do some activities with other campers and also participate in camp wide special events where unity and teamwork are emphasized.
