From Brad Finkel, Chief Operating Officer, JCC Chicago

Our Mission

Camp Chi inspires and educates generations of campers through exceptional transformative Jewish communal and recreational experiences.

Our Vision

Camp Chi will build a strong, inclusive, tradition-rich camp community that teaches life lessons and celebrates individual growth. Through deep connections to nature, Shabbat and Israel, Camp Chi lights a flame within each individual igniting and strengthening friendships, lifetime connections to Camp Chi, and Jewish life.

Our Values

Intentionally planned and thought out, everything we do at camp is connected back to our core values of Kindness (Chesed), Respect (Kavod), and Community (Kehilla). As campers go through their journey, they get to explore these core values in addition to a wide array of other values and their Jewish perspective.

A Leader In Truly Inclusive Camps

JCC Camp Chi strives to create an inclusive and safe community for everyone regardless of abilities, gender, sex, sexual orientation and/or expression, race, religion, or any other status protected by law.

We recognize that each camper and staff member have different needs and abilities, and agree to work with each individual to support them at JCC Camp Chi. For those that require one on one support, Camp Chi is proud to partner with Keshet, to ensure that campers with intellectual, social and physical disabilities can participate fully.

At Camp Chi, we stand for respect, treating ALL people with kindness, and embracing the diversity of our community.
