Testimonials from our CMC Families

My children built friendships through a variety of enriching experiences, were immersed in Jewish cultural observances and engaged in outdoor activities with their cabin. These are connections we cannot create at home, all the more reason to send our children to Camp Mountain Chai - Camp Parent, San Diego


Everything I could think of for a Jewish camp. It is the best! - Camp Parent, Palm Springs


At camp, my daughter feels like she is home with her family and cries and cries when she returns home and all she talks about is going back and how much she misses it - Camp Parent, San Diego
