Summer Programs and Camps

Jewish Camp Experience

Children come home from our Jewish camps enthusiastic about their Jewish identity and with Jewish friendships that can last a lifetime. Days are filled with exciting outdoor activities ranging from swimming and roller-blading to overnight campouts and basketball.

Campers will also learn about their Jewish heritage through evening programs, arts and crafts projects, and a variety of optional activities including theater, puppetry, photography, music, and Israeli folk dancing. Add in lots of singing, Shabbat observance, and a host of other great activities and one begins to understand why students can’t wait for camp to begin each summer.

Campership Applications Are Now Available

Camp experience is wonderful and life changing. It is also expensive. Congregation Beth Israel is able to offer camperships due to contributions from congregants to the Biblarz Campership fund and the Jewish Federation Fund.  Contact the CBI Office for an application.
