About Us:

At Camp TOV, teens make a difference. They learn about a variety of issues facing our society -- poverty, hunger, environmental protection, care of the elderly and more. With an emphasis on Jewish values and the importance of gemilut chassidim -- acts of loving kindness and tikkun olam -- repairing the world -- teens use their time and energy to volunteer in a fun, engaging and hands-on way. This interactive service program is sponsored by the Jewish United Fund/Jewish Federation. Throughout the school year you can still make a difference with our TOV Monthly Teen Volunteering (MTV) program. Check out our video and see how TOV teens make a difference! Find us on Facebook at TOV Teen-Volunteering or follow us on Twitter @TOVTeens. Who can attend? Jewish teens entering grades 7 through 10, who live in the Chicagoland area. There are two, one-week sessions in August to choose from. Each offers similar volunteer experiences. Campers are picked up each morning from centrally located spots in the city and suburbs based on where campers live. Then the bus brings them back to the drop-off locations at the end of the day. Evening/Under-Nighter Program: Teens will have the opportunity during one of the days of camp to stay a few extra hours to serve dinner at community kitchens. Dinner and programming will be provided and the longer day will allow for teens to participate in social action in a way they may not have been able to experience before.
