Work and play the Camp Chi way
10th grade-21 years | 2-8 Weeks
Camp Chi’s programming for older teens and young adults with disabilities extends beyond traditional camper years. The Keshet Avodah Corps at Camp Chi combines work-related activities with camp recreation. Avodah members are staff at Camp Chi. They live alongside other participants while gaining valuable life skills and work experience.
Work assignments and job coaches are assigned based on an individual participant’s interests and abilities. Past examples of jobs include working in the office and sorting mail, helping groom horses at the stables, assisting in the art center, setting up the dining hall for meals, overseeing the camp garden and preparing Perlstein Retreat Center for guests. There’s plenty of time for fun too with daily swimming, fitness, campfires, sports and more.
Sessions range in length from two to eight weeks.
This unique experience is recognized by Slingshot as one of the most innovative Jewish programs serving individuals with disabilities.
