TAG Initiative

Torah Avodah Gimilut Chasadim is an initiative designed to enrich the Jewish components of Summer Camp. This year, Kehilla, or community, is the TAG initiative. “TAG: Jewish Values through JCC Camping is a curricular initiative designed to enrich the Jewish component of the JCC camping experience. TAG develops discrete Jewish content and programming units for day and resident camps, finding ways to integrate Jewish life, experience and values into the fabric of camp. TAG has also been effective in after school and other youth programs. Each initiative has drama, discussion, games, art, music, storytelling, and Jewish text study components.” (JCC Association, 2013)

ACA Accreditation means that your child’s camp cares enough to undergo a thorough (up to 300 standards) review of its operation–from staff qualifications and training to emergency management. American Camp Association collaborates with experts from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Red Cross, and other youth-serving agencies to assure that current practices at your child’s camp reflect the most up-to-date, research based standards in camp operation. Camps and ACA form a partnership that promotes growth and fun in an environment committed to safety.
