HEAR IT FROM OUR PARENTS
“It's not every day a kid can come home and say he made kugel and did archery! And the Shabbat challah is an incredible touch. Just took ours out of the oven! And he said: I had kef at camp."
"You guys have done an amazing job bringing the overnight camp experience to our kids. The “ruach” of your program comes through in everything you do – from the staff’s engagement with the campers, to the thoughtfully organized field trips, to the camp song.”
“As a half-Jewish, half-Catholic family... the exposure to Judaism was a perfect taste for our daughter… The breadth of activities, the encouragement of the counselors…, the field trips, and the overall sense of community is unparalleled.”
JEWISH CAMP HAS BEEN DELIVERING POSITIVE OUTCOMES FOR MORE THAN 100 YEARS
IN THAT TIME, OUR WORLD HAS CHANGED DRAMATICALLY
WE KNOW JEWISH OVERNIGHT CAMP WORKS
WE ALSO UNDERSTAND THE REALITIES FACING MODERN JEWISH FAMILIES
