OMG best camp ever

Best place ever. A place where everyone feels comfyorable just being themselves. Never went to a camp like this in my life. There is 0 judgement. Not once did I ever hear “that’s so weird/odd” when I was there. Just a place where everyone can be the self and that =happy.

Most amazing camp

I’ve been to all the camps out there and this is the best. A place where you always come out a better person than you were before you went. Thank you JGR!

Thank You JGR

Never before have I gone to a camp like JGR. It’s the only place I’ve been to where no one is called “nerdy” or pegged “chassidish,” and where cliques and bullying are simply not stood for. Everyone is given equal chance to shine and share her personality, whether she is from a Lubavitch home or barely keeps kosher. Nechama Laber has created an atmosphere reminiscent of Moshiach times: a camp where no one cares about status quos and designer clothing, and focuses only on the neshama of each girl. Every Jewish–and Lubavitch–institution can learn a thing or two from JGR… Read more »

Amazing camp! Thank you for all the hard work! Rabbi and Mrs. Laber put together a wonderful camp. The counselors made the girls feel special and well taken care of. My daughter enjoyed expressing her creativities and making great friends.. And of course The movie was the highlight!

Special thanks

My daughter was in truly special hands there this summer. She came home a much more confident and happy girl. Definitely the only camp I will ever send my girls to! Thank you to all those who made her experience so wonderful and to Nechama Laber who dedicates her family to this shlichus. Thank you!! Elisheva Weiss

Special thank you to Chana Faygen and Bracha Morozow . There are no words to express what you did for JGR this summer. Every minute was incredible because of the two of you, there is no way to show you both how much you have changed lives. You shod both go from strength to strength in ruchnius and gashmius.

Best place!

Best place!

I was privileged to come to jgr this year as a counselor! Jgr is truly a place where heaven and earth meet! I heard a camper say that jgr feels like moshiach! And it really does. The unity and acceptance brings out only the best in each camper and every camper is really taken care of as an only child! There is such a warm atmosphere and love for yiddishkeit in the atmosphere! IJGR, you are loved! 🙂
