Summer Fun Since ’91!

Jefunira Camp - Join The Fun


Summer 2022: our 31st summer of fun!

We are very excited to be celebrating our 31st year of Jefunira Camp summer fun! At Jefunira (pronounced Jef-fun-ira) we believe in the power of play and community. From field games and art projects to water play and lip syncs, campers enjoy all the best parts of summer while making friendships and gaining confidence. Our inclusive and varied programming offers children a chance to learn through play in a safe, caring, and fun setting.

We know that this summer will be different than any of our past summers because of COVID-19. We have been working with State and County Agencies, the American Camping Association, the Western Association of Independent Camp and other healthcare professionals to create plans and procedures that will allow us to run a safe manner while also ensuring that every camper has an exceptional experience.

Jefunira will be located at Nixon Elementary School in Stanford, California.

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!
