Summer is the most exciting time of year, so why not spend it at a place that has the most excitement? From archery to boating, overnights to sports, Camp Raanana is everything a camp should be and more. The J operates Camp Raanana at the beautiful Michigan United Conservation Club’s (MUCC) Nature Center at Cedar Lake with access to a private swimming beach, boating areas, nature trails, sports fields, an archery range and an amphitheatre for Shabbat celebrations, located a short drive away in Chelsea, Michigan.
Camp Raanana also offers a Counselor-in-Training program for teens entering 9th and 10th Grade, called the Ozrim Program. Ozrim is Hebrew for “helpers”, and an individual is affectionately called an “Ozo”. Our Ozrim program allows teens create relationships with fellow Ozrim as they learn valuable skills about being a counselor, programming, leadership skills, and the operations of camp. The summer is an evolution from camper to staff for Ozos as a group and as individuals.
