Camp Komaroff




Camp Komaroff and the Alpert JCC

Since 1960, Camp Komaroff has been here to support children. We believe our camp helps foster meaningful relationships, uncover hidden talents, develop new skills, and help children become more independent. Our camp is a safe space for all campers to come and explore who they are, their connection to Judaism, and their community. We have welcomed over 20,000 campers since the start of Camp Komaroff, and we hope your child will be one of them this Summer.

At the Alpert Jewish Community Center, we encourage growth, inspire confidence, and provide a framework for lasting memories and friendships. We provide quality programs that are age appropriate, fun, and safe. Our camp is filled with a sense of SIMCHA (joy), KEHILA (community), RUACH (spirit), and KEF (fun). Throughout all of our programs, we encourage discovery and self-exploration. The Alpert Jewish Community Center is a warm and welcoming environment for everyone, regardless of religious affiliation.


A Message from Our Camp Director

Shalom! I am excited and ready to welcome all of our campers and families to Summer 2020! Thank you so much for choosing to send your child to our camp. To me, providing a safe place for your campers means creating a place where kids can be themselves, learn about others, and gain new skills. Our goal is to be more just than a math, science, or space camp—we are about experiencing a wide variety of activities to explore interests and grow. Camp is all about community and developing new relationships, and I am happy that you are now with us. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns. Here’s to an amazing summer!
