Who should sign up for our UK camp?
We are proud to welcome young Jewish people aged 10-16 years from all around the world. If you want to get involved in a wide range of high adrenalin activities, exciting excursions, improve your English and most importantly make friends with other young Jewish people from around the world, JCamps is certainly for you.
What is the language spoken at camp?
The main language at camp is English. We also celebrate the multi-lingual nature of our camp and have a diverse team of monitors from around the world, so our campers always have someone to translate for them if necessary.
Where is the camp located?
JCamps London is located at Grosvenor Hall in Ashford, Kent. We are just 45 minutes from central London by train and close to London's three main airports
How long have you been running JCamps London
With 25 years experience organising Jewish summer camps, our Camp Directors, Brian and Patricia Geminder established JCamps London in 2010
How about security?
We take security very seriously. The entire campus is surrounded by hire wire fencing with CCTV cameras and dense tree foliage. There is only one gated entrance to the campus which is electronically controlled by a central hub with TV monitor. All our staff have walkie talkies so that they are in constant communication. We also have 24 hour reception so we can monitor all in and out movement. Night security patrols are also on duty throughout the night. All excursions are accompanied by our monitors and only privately hired transport is used. On excursions all the campers are provided with our distinctive green tee shirts for easy recognition.
Do you get to see the local area?
Of course! We run excursions to central London in order to see the sights: Big Ben, the London eye, Buckingham Palace and many more. We also go to medieval Canterbury, the seaside town of Brighton as well as the Bluewater Shopping Mall.
