Campers will get the chance to connect with other BB Campers in their age group and with BB Camp staff. BB Camp at J-Cation is designed to focus on forming and strengthening positive relationships between campers, as they participate in our innovative programming and feel the ruach (spirit) of BB Camp. Our rising 7th-9th grade campers will have an additional leadership track during their week of  BB Camp at J-Cation, to model the leadership skills they would have been gaining at BB Overnight Camp!

BB Camp at J-Cation will be modified and unique due to the current COVID-19 State guidelines; however, our camp will imbue the excellence and BB Camp magic that you can always expect from us.  Our Professional staff and beloved BB Overnight Camp counselors will lead our campers in exciting and fun activities, while campers connect with each other, adhering to the State’s guidelines.

Activities will include:

  • Chuggim (Group activities): Groups will participate in traditional BB Camp activities such as swimming, arts & crafts, Israeli dance, athletics, drama, and more.
  • Leadership Building: Campers will work as a team to create an activity that they will lead for a younger group of campers. They will gain leadership skills in communication, programming, and role modeling.
  • Leadership (Session 2 Only): Our rising 7th-9th grade campers will have an additional leadership track during their week of  BB Camp at J-Cation, to model the leadership skills they would have been gaining at BB Overnight Camp!
  • Jewish Enrichment: Each day, BB Camp at J-Cation will follow one of BB Camp’s 7 core values, and campers will take part in interactive activities based on these core values.
  • Individuals: Campers get to choose from a number of BB Camp activities, some examples of these are friendship bracelet making, chill on the hill, and nature walks.
  • Shabbat: We all know Shabbat is one of our favorite BB Camp activities. BB Camp at J-Cation will bring the activities and feelings of the best parts of our BB Camp Shabbats…the music, the togetherness, the Israeli dancing (“Let’s get sweaty!”), and the delicious challah.

The health and safety of our campers and community is always our highest priority. Our staff have prepared a BB Camp COVID-19 specific Operations Manual, which includes guidance from our medical experts, the Oregon Health Authority (OHA), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the American Camp Association (ACA), and the Association for Camp Nursing (ACN).  It is important to us that our families feel confident and comfortable having their child(ren) spend their summer with us at any of our programs. We understand that an essential part of your comfortability is knowing exactly how our camp procedures will look this summer.  Please feel free to review our protocols: COVID-19 specific Operations Manual
