Camp Mountain Chai is the realization of a dream of a number of committed leaders in the San Diego Jewish community. After years of searching, the current facility in Angelus Oaks was purchased in 2004 by the Jewish Community Camp and Retreat Center, Inc. and Camp Mountain Chai officially opened its doors to Jewish children in 2006.
CMC’s SIT program incorporates three specific components:
* Hadracha: The Hadracha (training) component focuses on exploring topics such as child development, leadership skills, conflict management and resolution, program planning, Jewish role modeling, Jewish community building, and more.
* Placements: Each SIT will gain practical hands-on experience through different cabin and specialty placements.
* Program Planning: SITs will have the opportunity to be part of both small and large scale program planning. Events include the 4th of July Carnival, end of session banquets, Maccabiah, evening programs, lights out camper programs, and more.
