Why was Camp Chai voted ‘Best Day Camp’ by the Bohemian? 

It’s because Camp Chai is the best in Sonoma County, offering active games, arts and crafts, recreational swim, singing, weekly BBQ lunches, Jewish traditions, and great leadership.

It’s where your community feels like family!  All are welcome regardless of religious practice.
