“‘Color wars’ is the biggest and most important week of Camp J,” says Camp Director Gillian May. “This is when our campers suddenly become consumed by a sense of tradition and camaraderie, and they put all of their energy into the competition.”
The week-long fun starts July 24. And the best part is that if you haven’t enrolled anyone yet, we’ve still got space for you.
The popular event, a long-standing tradition at Camp J, involves teams competing in a number of games and challenges — some of which might leave participants in a variety of hues (but don’t worry — it all comes out in the wash). And then whichever team has accumulated the most points by the end of the week wins.
Color Wars and our other planned programs take all the values and ideals of Camp J — leadership, hachnasat orchim or radically welcoming, and pursuing your passion — and demonstrate them through play, creative expression, and healthy competition. Whether our camp kids are into sports, baking, making music videos, painting, dancing, or all of the above, Color Wars brings out the best in everyone.
