Jewish Camp is more than just camp

For your child, Jewish camp is just plain fun. But it’s much more than that—it’s camp with a soul.

Camp is exciting!

Your kids will have the summer of their lives while also discovering values like independence, friendship, community, fairness, diversity, giving back, inclusion, integrity, collaboration, and heritage. Jewish camp is packed with action: boating, basketball, filmmaking, rock climbing, cooking, archery, painting, drama, dance—you name it!

Campers become leaders.

Camp promotes your child’s individual growth in an enriching Jewish environment. At camp, kids have cool, Jewish role models who inspire confidence and independence, guiding your child to think creatively, build self-esteem, listen and communicate more effectively, and discover interests and talents. Camp activities emphasize leadership skills.

Camping lasts a lifetime

There’s a Jewish camp for everyone—no matter what your background—where your child will have fun, be comfortable, learn more about themselves, and explore their Jewish identity. The impact of overnight Jewish camp is immediate and lasting, value their heritage, are engaged in their communities, and support more causes throughout their lives.
