Jewish Summer Resources

Jewish summer camps and teen programs combine the activities, friendships, and communal life of traditional camps with the Jewish values, role models and culture of our shared heritage. These programs offer  a unique, immersive experience that where children can experience joy and discovery in a communal Jewish setting.
