Host Families - JCC Day Camps

Host Families

One thing that makes JCC Day Camps special is our Shlichim program.  These are Israelis that spend their summer here with our campers to enhance their experience.

Part of the program is that the Israelis spend the summer with host families to learn about our culture.  We are currently looking for potential host families for this summer.


  • Schlichim have completed their army or national service and have a strong background in education and leadership.
  • The Schlichim come with a strong desire to share your day-to-day life and  to experience what being American is like.
  • Enjoy reconnecting with the local landmarks by taking the Schlichim to all things Detroit.
  • To help with the costs of housing and providing meals there is a stipend offered per week.
  • A truly rewarding experience to all that are a part of it.
