Watch here in the coming months for updates on camp.
In the meantime, we are exploring ways of engaging our camp families that will provide a safe environment for our campers, families, and staff.
Be well, stay safe, and camp on!
Since 1969, Camp Achva at the Pozez JCC of Northern Virginia provides fun and formative summer experiences for school-age children from grades K–12. Camp Achva is the premier Jewish day camp in Northern Virginia. As a traditional day camp model, our vision is to create a safe space for campers and staff to learn and grow through building relationships with one another, engaging in meaningful programming, and embracing old and new camp traditions infused with Jewish culture.
Through daily scheduling, field trips, special events, and leadership opportunities, campers from our youngest to our oldest units will look forward to augmented programming each year until they reach LIT-status (Leaders-in-Training), and ultimately join our staff.
We support the inclusion of all children in camp, regardless of one’s physical, social or emotional needs. Camp is a place to learn, grow, and have fun! If your child needs additional support to ensure a successful summer in Camp Achva, we can arrange for an Inclusion Support Staff (Shadow) at an additional cost.
