When making a phone call toMarks JCH Summer Day Camp

The teaching of Jewish values is an integral part of everything we do at the Marks JCH Summer Day Camp. Our programs help children to develop their identities by promoting a sense of cultural kinship within a natural Jewish environment. We try at all times to foster individual growth while embracing Jewish family and community values.

This summer will be my older child's 4th summer and my younger child's 2nd summer. There's a reason why we keep signing on to this summer camp - we are very happy with it!

Marks JCH summer camp is truly the best in Brooklyn - their model is copied by other camps, but no one can replicate Marks JCH. They are super organized, very safe, their trips are amazing and the Jewish theme awesomely completes the whole experience. They have a ton of arts / sports activities to make it fun for any type of kids, whether artistic or athletic. The organization is run very well - every minute is planned for, every child is accounted, every trip has enough staff to look after kids. We love the daily morning routine and the Israeli staff are awesome. We are excited to be going back! Two thumbs up!

Our highly trained professional staff works together to create activities and services designed with you in mind.On behalf of Marks JCH Summer Day Camp, it is my pleasure to give you a tour and an introduction to summer 2015 at the “J.” Our camp is 88 years old – it was one of the first programs that were instituted at Marks JCH upon building completion. And there is a good reason for that – we always believed that camp is a crucial part of a child’s life. Camp is where children learn how to play soccer and paint; it is a safe environment where each child can make a friend; where growth is nurtured and development is a constant process; where identity is formed and character is built.

The event took place at the Marks JCH in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, where Mikhail Trosman taught for nearly 10 years. Irina was one of Mikhail’s first students in Brooklyn, where each of them settled after emigrating from their respective cities in Ukraine. While Irina had several coaches afterwards, she credits much of her success to her old coach Mikhail. And many of Mikhail’s former students in France, Israel, Ukraine and the US share that sentiment. His passion and dedication to his work were an inspiration to many; to illustrate, he conducted his last chess lesson in severely deteriorating health only weeks before his passing in December 2011.
