Resident Camp Opportunities

Jewish resident, or "sleepover," camp is one of the greatest gifts you can give a child. Not only is it a lot of fun, but it's a wonderful way to build self-esteem, teach Jewish values, make life-long friends, and spend time in the great outdoors! Research has even shown that the highest life-long Jewish retention rate is in children who went to Jewish summer camp (or similar experience). According to Professor Arnold Eisen, a scholar of American Judaism and the chancellor of the Jewish Theological Seminary, "Nothing I do to build Jewish life, Jewish education, or the Jewish community is more important than getting more kids to Jewish camps."
