Camp Achva


About Camp Achva

Camp Achva, powered by the Pozez JCC of Northern Virginia in collaboration with Gesher Jewish Day School, provides fun and formative summer experiences for school-age children in grades K–10. Since 1969, Camp Achva has been the premier Jewish day camp in Northern Virginia. Following 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 each other, engaging in meaningful programming, and embracing old and new camp traditions infused with Jewish culture. 

Through daily scheduling, special events, and leadership opportunities, campers of all ages look forward to augmented, age-appropriate programming that builds upon itself each year until our campers are, ultimately, old enough to be able to join our staff as counselors themselves.
