Parent Testimonials

It had been very easy this summer getting my kids up each morning. They were so excited about their plans for their day at Camp Ruach. They'd come home singing the songs and telling stories of their adventures at camp. My son, Tate couldn't stop wandering around the house rehearsing his lines and singing the soundtrack from the play Annie that he took part in. The staff at Camp Ruach make an impact on everyone they come in contact with. The counselors are fantastic, friendly, fun and most of all engaging. From the bottom of my heart I thank you all for giving my children a camp they can call home. A place to run to when school lets out. A place where they can be themselves because they know they are embraced regardless. They are already planning to return next year.  I love having the confidence while I'm at work that the children are able to be active and social in a safe and fun environment.  I wish every child in the world could be lucky enough to have a Camp Ruach experience! Thank you for all that you have done for us.

I’ve recommended the JCC Summer Camp to a lot of people! Camp Ruach creates a fun, safe and memorable experience for campers. The variety of activities is terrific and continues to expand and grow with the kids. Matthew is very excited to go on trips this summer with his friends. It’s clear to the parents that Camp Ruach is continuing to invest and grow to make this a great camp experience - the kids are excited to come back year after year.

We’ve been very happy with the Summer day camp and swimming lessons. I’m always impressed with anyone from the office I speak to--whether it’s the camp office or the regular office/membership. Everyone is very nice and helpful.

Our son has been going to camp since he was three years old, he loves riding the bus and seeing all of his friends. Camp Ruach offers a wide variety of activities for all ages and there is always something new and fun to do! The staff at camp are loving and caring, they make our son feel like family.

Camp Ruach is known as the best day camp in the area so sending Sadie there was an easy decision. And, we were not disappointed! The days were filled with fun activities and no activities were repeated too frequently so sadie was never bored. She loved entertainment wednesdays and cooking class! The arts and craft projects on the 2 year old level were the same projects I was doing at camp as a 12 year old! Sadie also loved getting to wash the little tikes cars in the carwash -- soap, sponges, buckets of water, what could be more fun! In addition, it was comforting to know that given her age the kids were given fun indoor activities on the really hot days. The counselors were the best --warm, fun and responsible. Its clear only the best candidates are hired. Sadie had a wonderful summer and is counting down the days until camp this year!
