Why Jewish overnight camp?

At overnight camp, kids get the chance to explore who they are—and who they want to become—in an active, inspiring, and fun-filled environment. Jewish camp is more than just camp with Jewish kids. At Jewish camp, ruach, or spirit, is part of every activity, from dancing to hitting a home run. Campers explore their connection to Judaism in meaningful ways while having the summer of their lives. Jewish camp is more than just overnight camp; it is camp with a soul.
