Advancing Mental Health at Summer J Camp

What do spending an afternoon with dogs and playing with giant soccer balls have in common? For Summer J Camp’s newest staff member Lisa Williams, they’re both opportunities for mental health awareness. Thanks to a grant from Foundation for Jewish Camp, Lisa will collaborate with the J Camp team to create activities, games, and offer support to enhance the mental, emotional, social, and spiritual health (MESSH) of our camp community this summer. "The younger we teach these skills to kids, the better we set them up for a lifetime of success around mental health awareness," she said. "And it can all start at a random day at summer camp."
