Summer Camps

A lifelong Jewish identity is created through fun activities and strong friendships as well as a better understanding of Jewish life. Studies have shown that Jewish camping and visiting Israel greatly increases a youth’s sense of pride and connection to Judaism, and leads to a greater likeliness of strongly identifying as a Jew in adulthood. Reform Jewish summer camps in the region include:

  • Camps Airy and Louise   https://airylouise.org - The only Brother-Sister Jewish camps in the country, located in Maryland.
  • Capital Camps   http://www.capitalcamps.org - Our mission is to build Jewish identity using the most powerful tool – a quality, immersive experience.  Located in Waynesboro, PA.
  • Camp Harlam    http://campharlam.org – Regional Reform camp in Pennsylvania for 3rd-10th grades. Sessions are normally four weeks, but younger campers can choose a two-week session.  
  • Six Points Sports Academy   http://6pointssports.org  – National Reform sports camp in Greensboro, N.C., for 4th-10th grades. Sessions are two weeks, and athletes choose one sport to focus on per session.  
  • Blue Star Camps   http://www.bluestarcamps.com - A vibrant and inclusive Jewish camp community where campers could learn about their shared history and identity.  Located in North Carolina.
