6 Points Creative Arts Academy and all URJ camps are proud of our open, supportive and inclusive environments. The make-up of the URJ and our programs is as diverse as our population, therefore our communities represent that vibrant and colorful fabric that makes up the Reform Jewish population. We hope that our campers and staff strengthen their self-esteem, Jewish identity, and connection to the Jewish community through the supportive nature of our people, staff, and programs.
With the care of our community is our highest priority, we recognize that campers may need varying levels of support while at camp. It takes great intentional, active and thoughtful planning to put systems in place to ensure that each child is given the chance to enjoy the most positive experience. Our counselors, mentors and leadership work with community care specialists to meet this goal on-site.
Parents are our invaluable partners in ensuring the success of each camper. Together we work to set up each camper with the backing they need to be the best version of themselves. It is critical that parents provide us with all the information necessary to determine what supports will be needed, and can be provided, in the camp environment. Changes in medication, treatment, health and/or family circumstances must be shared with camp leadership prior to your camper’s arrival. We will be equally forthcoming if camp is unable to make the accommodations needed for a camper to thrive in our program and will work with families to identify other potential placement options.
All campers are recognized as full members of the Jewish community whether they have one or two Jewish parents. This is a no-stress environment, where learning the levels of Jewish living is an enjoyable and natural process with which campers engage.
6 Points Creative Arts Academy embraces the diversity of life experiences and Jewish journeys. In alignment with our mission and Reform Jewish values, we welcome and support gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender campers, staff, faculty, and all members of our community who are between and outside of those identities.
