jewish campers

“This summer, I was a camper at Camp JCA Shalom in Malibu, California. I spent 12 days making friends, doing fun activities and I couldn’t have wished for a better experience! Before flying, I was nervous. I didn’t know anyone who had done something like this and I had no idea what to expect. As soon as I arrived at camp and met all my fellow campers, my nerves settled. Everyone was chatty and fun and making friends was easy! My highlight of the trip was going sea kayaking on the overnight. We also did other fun things like horse riding and going to the pool everyday. Being the only English camper there the Americans fell in love with my English accent and would ask me to say words daily just to hear how I said it. Part of my unit was getting to do a project around camp and ours was redoing the gaga pit. My counsellors were all so nice and not only were they in charge but they became friends as well. It was an amazing summer and I am so glad that I decided to go.” Galit Tamam, camper from Leeds, Summer 2017.
