Description

We believe that teenagers at high school level are looking for summer experiences that will challenge them, provide them with a sense of ownership and an opportunity to make incredible connections. Each experience at Teen Camp is designed to help develop leadership, growth and great memories.

We challenge our TAC campers to think about new ideas, to put themselves outside of their comfort zone and to gain an appreciation for helping and benefiting others. Campers leave completely inspired by the opportunities they have explored and the new ideas they have been exposed to. All campers get to participate in a travel experience during each session of camp, providing them with the chance to explore a new place and participate in volunteer work, site seeing and adventure. Our service learning program provides campers with meaningful volunteer work and a connection to local not for profits agencies. Teen Camp is a place that can offer something for everyone while challenging anyone.

Director

Jeff Horowitz

Jeff Horowitz is an NJY Camps lifer, having grown up alongside his three siblings through nine years of Nah-Jee-Wah, Cedar Lake, and Teen Camp. Recognizing a clear passion for all things camp, Jeff then continued to return to camp as a member of the Cedar Lake (grades 7-9) staff and eventually, the seasonal leadership team. While pursuing a business administration degree from Binghamton University, Jeff embarked on identifying an opportunity to pair his business and leadership acumen with his passion for working with children.

In 2019, that opportunity arose at his home away from home, and Jeff joined the NJY Camps year-round team as the Marketing Coordinator before transitioning to the role of Assistant Director of Camp Nah-Jee-Wah from 2020-2023.

In the Fall of 2023, Jeff took on the role of Director of NJY Teen Camp and began reimagining the TAC program for 2024 and beyond. As someone who has grown up and worked at all levels of NJY Camps, Jeff knows just how crucial the Teen Camp experience is to teens forming their identity, sense of independence, and understanding of their global community.

Jeff is currently pursuing a Master of Public Administration from Rutgers University. Recognized for his leadership potential within the continental Jewish camping field, Jeff was selected for the prestigious Merrin Fellowship as part of the JCC Association of North America.
