We strive to provide campers with a nurturing experience that will help promote social, emotional and intellectual development. Our diverse specialty programs teach universal values that will encourage campers to explore aspects of Jewish traditions while remaining culturally sensitive to others. We give campers the opportunity to establish their role in the community through a variety of service learning projects. Lastly, we provide a positive atmosphere that is fundamentally focused on creating lasting and positive relationships with others.
