Why Jewish Overnight Camp?

 

 

Jewish camp weaves Jewish values, culture, and traditions into the fabric of camp, helping campers to connect to their own identity and the larger Jewish community.

 

Children with pivotal Jewish camp experiences are more likely to become adults who:

 

  • Value their Jewish heritage

  • Support Jewish causes

  • Take on leadership roles in their communities

 

 

The Statistics:

 

  • Jewish Campers are 21% more likely to feel that being Jewish is very important as adults

  • 26% of Jewish Campers are more likely to become members of a synagogue as adults.

  • One out of three Jewish professionals started out as a camp counselor.

  • One out of five Jewish professionals cited Jewish camp as the core reason in their decision to enter a professional field.
