Jewish Summer Camps

As children grow, they absorb experiences that form the foundations of their lives. In a fun, relaxed atmosphere, our children explore and expand their creativity and intellect, as well as social skills, while in a Jewish environment. This reinforces their Jewish learning and helps carry Judaism into our children’s futures; they are the living future of Judaism itself.
 
In support of this ideal, many camps and organizations offer scholarships to make Jewish camp accessible to more children. Please explore the many options for camps and "campership" scholarships on this page.
 
See below for a list of camps that participated in the 2021 Virtual Camp Fair.
