What Makes a Good Life?

Huddle up.

What leads to a happy life? If you think it’s fame and fortune, you’re not alone – but, according to psychiatrist Robert Waldinger, it’s not true. In this TEDx talk, he shares the results of a 75-year long study on happiness and the important lessons uncovered by the results.

It’s astounding to hear the parallels he draws between the fundamental values of JCC Maccabi Sports Camp and his study spanning generations.

The key to a life filled with happiness boils down to one thing: relationships. That is why we strive to build a strong sense of Jewish community here at JCC Maccabi Sports Camp. Both on and off the field, we foster a supportive environment where our campers can build positive relationships away from the year-round stress, struggles and chaos of life.

Judaism is a communal experience and as a camp community, we share a bond like no other. No matter how big or small our Jewish community is here at camp, the positive relationships and social connections keep us all happier and healthier.
