Regional Jewish Overnight Camps

There are many types of Jewish overnight camps available to you. No matter how you affiliate, there is a Jewish camp where your child will have a great time, feel a part of a community and love being Jewish. There are camps sponsored by Jewish movements, such as Reform, Conservative, Orthodox and Reconstructionist. There are non-denominational camps and pluralistic camps which focus on providing experiences that build positive Jewish identity. There are Zionist camps that focus on building connections with Israel. More recently, the Foundation for Jewish Camp has had an instrumental role in creating specialty camps which focus on sports, science and technology, farming and outdoor adventures. There are also camps for kids with disabilities. Below you will find an alphabetical listing of some camps of local interest attended by many families in our community. You can also search for some specialty camps located in the eastern part of the U.S. that may be of specific interest to your child.
