Share Your Child’s Story – Help Save the J-1 Visa Program

Posted by September 5, 2017 • Share:

JCC Maccabi Sports Camp is asking our camp families to share a positive story or experience your child has had with one of our international staff members. We will pass these stories down to Washington D.C as we rally to keep the J-1 Visa Program alive. To share a story, click here.





JCC Maccabi Sports Camp believes wholeheartedly in the importance of cultural exchange. Nearly 40% of our summer staff comes from different parts of the world including Israel, England, Scotland, South Africa and Wales. Our international staff each bring a unique perspective, energy, and commitment to our camp community.

Hiring International Staff allows our campers to have a direct relationship with a person from a country and culture different than their own. It helps our campers learn how to ask questions, how to listen, and how to value differences and similarities. Those experiences, that direct relationship, helps build strong character.
