Yachad Program

Yachad is an agency of the Orthodox Union that is dedicated to addressing the needs of individuals with disabilities and including them in the Jewish Community. In addition to an expanded vocational/worker program, campers will be fully integrated into a typical bunk together with supportive ‘shadow’ staff to facilitate meaningful inclusion.  This is an extremely special opportunity, and while there are obvious benefits to having our Yachad Members experience a ‘typical’ summer, there is also incredible value to be gained for the campers and staff in camp as well.

The Yachad workers coming to camp have a range of abilities, and we will have job coaches on staff in order to help facilitate and support the work being done and the relationships that will be formed. We are certain that, together, we will be able to provide Yachad workers with a vocational experience that is both appropriate and challenging.
