Akiba Day Camp
A fixture at Temple Akiba since 1967, Akiba Day Camp is a community-based program to enhance the summer for children entering kindergarten through 10th grade. Akiba Day Camp is carefully designed to provide all campers with a unique experience that includes activities that kids enjoy most and uses them to encourage personal accomplishment and group cooperation.
Over the course of the summer, campers build self-confidence and develop positive attitudes by trying and succeeding at diverse new activities. Whether it’s swimming, arts and crafts, or playing a new sport, by interacting with their peers, campers learn the importance of participating with others and building successful relationships. They also have the opportunity to grow their Jewish identity with special Shabbat programming on Fridays.
We support and celebrate each camper’s abilities and encourage our campers to be active, proud, courageous, responsible and cooperative. We also understand that these goals are best accomplished in a friendly, safe, comfortable and clean environment.

Our Camp Staff
The Akiba Day Camp staff is rich with experience in education, the arts, Judaic rituals, creativity and athletics. Many of the staff have returned to work at Akiba Day Camp summer after summer, after growing up there as a camper. We offer one of the highest staff-to-camper ratios in a day camp setting. All staff are CPR certified.
