Description

Camp is a transformative experience. A time for discovery, growth and independence. At Camp Nah-Jee-Wah, we have developed a multi-faceted, family friendly program that can be individually tailored to your needs – be it one week or the entire summer. Whatever time your child spends with us, you can be certain that they will grow – physically and emotionally – in an atmosphere that nurtures the individual through the group experience. Self-esteem and skills are professionally developed by our mature, experienced staff, most of whom are with us year after year. Within the template of a wide variety of age-appropriate activities, your child will develop his or her personal abilities in swimming, sports, (both competitively and non-competitively) arts, theater arts and science. Campers with special interests can hone their skills by participating in our Total Specialty Camps. Best of all, at Nah-Jee-Wah campers have fun, cultivate friendship, develop a love of Judaism and store memories and practices that can be cherished for a lifetime. Every child finds success on an individual basis. Camp Nah-Jee-Wah has provided children with quality summer programs since 1920. All programs take place at our beautiful 1,250-acre location in Milford, PA, just 90 minutes from New York City. Our campus includes professional athletic facilities, lake, pool, ropes challenge courses, skate park, plus numerous arts and nature programs.
