Camp Kesher

Summer Camp at the Pozez JCC of Northern Virginia

Rising 9th-12th Graders and ages 18-27  

Camp Kesher (Connection) is an exciting summer camp opportunity for teens and young adults offered by the Inclusion and Disability Services Department at the Pozez JCC of Northern Virginia.

Since its inception, Camp Kesher helps neurodiverse teens and young adults to build friendships and gain independence skills. In addition, the Camp Kesher experience gives campers the opportunity to gain confidence through success in fun activities such as art, sports and games, music, yoga, theme days, and much more — in a caring, friendly, and supportive environment. Each day, campers embark on a field trip to explore and experience all that Greater DC has to offer.

Ongoing Programs

Opportunities include collecting tickets, ushering, filing, data entry, concessions, mailings, and more. We create personal consistent schedules in your area of interest or you can sign-up for opportunities that work within your schedule.

Social Programs

The EDCJCC strives to create an inclusive environment through our many social programs. Programs include monthly bowling, game nights, cooking classes, and more. In addition to our regular monthly programs, we provide a variety of diverse and engaging social programs throughout the month. We pride ourselves on developing social programs that serve our community. Our social programs are ever-evolving based on our community needs.
