JCC Camps at Medford
When you're a kid, every summer matters.


Camp Aaron is Awesome!

While some may think that Disney World is the Happiest Place on Earth, for the past week, Camp Aaron has assumed that title. During the past week our 4 teams: Green Goofy’s, Blue Donald Duck’s, Red Mickey Mouse’s, and Yellow Pluto’s battled it out on the field, the arts pavilion, the pool, and on the stage. On Monday and Tuesday, the campers were able to select the activities that they competed in and on Wednesday and Thursday, there were teams activities.  These activities included a swim meet, Minute to Win It, an interactive game show by Hollyrock Entertainment, and Relays/Games on the Sports Field.  With the final score still in question, our week came to a culmination with our Apache Relay and our “Sign, Song, and Cheer” Competition. Each team put forth their best effort and will share Maccabiah memories for years to come.

As the camping season comes to a close it’s time to reminisce about what an amazing summer we had this year. In addition to their favorites (Crafts, Lake Inflatables, Archery, etc….) campers were encouraged to try new activities and things like Tailgate Games, 9 Square in the Air, Pickleball, and Boat Building quickly became camper favorites. We had a memorable time on our overnights, during Carnival Day, Israel Day, and with all our other special events. Within these activities friendships were formed and/or strengthened.  We will miss our 8th grade friends, but look forward to seeing them move up to be LIT’s next summer.

It has been another wonderful summer for everyone in Camp Aaron! Thank you for sharing your children with us. I hope everyone has a great camp off-season and we’ll look forward to seeing everyone back in Medford for Summer 2017!
