A Summer that
Lasts a Lifetime,
More than Just
a Summer Camp
Jewish Summer Camp
has a huge impact on your child and on the richness of our community. (Look at these pictures as proof!) Whether or not your family belongs to a synagogue, leads an active Jewish life, considers itself “religious,” identities as “interfaith,” or “unaffiliated,” summer camp can be a way to help your child build independence, create lasting friendships and memories, and strengthen Jewish pride and identity in a nurturing and welcoming community. Through experiential learning, campers gain lasting friendships and a true connection to Judaism, the great outdoors and their community. Spending summers at Jewish Summer Camp helps our kids become active, engaged Jewish Adults.
So, look around. Find the right summer camp for you and your family. And let Federation help you make it possible to go to Jewish Summer Camp this summer!
Why Jewish Camp?
Let us show you!
Your kids get the chance to explore who they are and who they want to become in a fun environment!
Because ruach (spirit) is a part of every activity, campers can explore their connection to Judaism in a meaningful way while having the summer of their lives.
I love so much about camp, but the aspect I love the most are the connections I make with my counselors. They have become like my older brothers. Over these past seven summers, I have definitely grown physically, but more importantly, something to hold onto mentally.
I love camp because I love spending time with my friends, getting to know the Israelis, and talking to my counselors. I grew as a person at camp because I took chances and tried new things. Camp also helped me grow Jewishly because I love Shabbat at camp.
Camp is an experience that can’t be compared to anything else. The singing, the sports, and the feeling of family are things that every kid should be able to enjoy. Camp gave me the opportunity to meet many many girls my age that I can relate to, talk to, and enjoy spending time with. The friends I made in camp I talk to almost everyday. I can’t wait to go back next year!
“Kallah overall was a very powerful and inspiring experience because it grew my love and understanding for the Jewish community, and it grew my desire to keep the community alive and well. Camp was truly one of the best experiences of my life and I loved every moment of it. I have grown and learned a lot and can’t wait to use my knowledge in upcoming years.”
