Our Valued Partners and Friends

Our kids have gone to Jefunira for a few years, and they can’t wait to go back every year. They run a great program, and it’s different for every session, so the kids don’t get bored. The program is always safe, but for a day camp they try a lot of new things from sports to acting out skits.

Jefunira Camp is about your kid being a kid.  Good old-fashioned fun, and lots of it!  I have always been very impressed with the counselors at Jefunira.  They truly care about the kids and take steps to make sure that everyone is having a good time.  Summer is the time to have fun, and Jefunira is where it happens.

I have recommended Jefunira to all my friends and colleagues.  So it’s fair to say that more children of psychiatrists and psychologists attend Jefunira Camp than any other competing local day camp experience.  My children attended for many years and loved every minute of it.  As a mental health provider, I loved seeing them love it.

Jefunira camp is good old-fashioned fun! From storytelling to otter pops, to games, to lip-syncs — Jefunira has got it going on! The counselors are fantastic with kids. Jeff and the staff do an amazing job of running this camp. My kids (now 14 and 11) both started Jefunira when they were in kindergarten, and they’ve been returning every summer since!

This was by far my kids’ favorite camp! The kids were engaged, the counselors are amazing, and they did cool things every day!

If JEFUNIRA CAMP could have a dictionary definition, it would mean THE MOST FUN, HAPPY TIMES AND SPECIAL SUMMER MEMORIES! My sons have both loved the wonderful staff and love returning to JEFUNIRA summer after summer. Our summer would not be the same without adding one more photo magnet to our refrigerator, which is now near covered with JEFUNIRA photos. Looking forward to this summer!
