Camp Kesher

Camp Kesher (Connection) is an exciting summer camp opportunity for teens (rising 11th & 12th graders), young adults, and adults offered by the Inclusion and Disability Services Department at the Pozez JCC of Northern Virginia. This pilot program will give campers the opportunity to make new friends, gain confidence through success in fun activities such as art, sports and games, music, yoga, theme days, and much more in a caring, friendly, and supportive environment. Each week, there will be a variety of field trips to explore and experience all that Greater DC has to offer.

Camp Kesher is partially funded by The Harvey S. Lowe, Jr. and Susan Hitchcock-Lowe Foundation
