The Importance of Jewish Summer Camp
Youngsters have the chance to develop lasting relationships, embrace new experiences, and explore what being Jewish means to them. URJ camps are an incubator for the future of Judaism in North America. Children who attend Jewish camp are more likely to remain intimately engaged with Judaism throughout their lives, and our camps provide a peer group that greatly increases the likeliness of campers making Jewish choices on a daily basis. URJ Camps
URJ Crane Lake Camp
Committed staff members (many of whom were campers themselves) strive to enrich the campers’ experiences by helping them build lasting friendships. These relationships lay the foundation for our summer community, providing encouragement and support. Our intimate camp environment allows campers to embrace the challenge of learning new skills in athletics, aquatics, the arts, and adventure and nature programs. What’s more, campers also immerse themselves in a wide range of innovative Jewish educational pursuits and creative spiritual experiences.
URJ Eisner Camp
Since 1958, URJ Eisner Camp has come to embody the transformative power of Jewish camping. Youngsters from URJ congregations across the northeastern United States join together each summer to have fun while experiencing the magic of this special community.
