URJ Camps

We are the 16 summer camps of the
Union for Reform Judaism.

We have experience. Since 1951, we’ve provided tens of thousands of children with the best combination of an outdoor summer overnight camping experience with a vibrant Reform Jewish living and learning environment.

We have heritage. At our camps, Judaism’s rich history and culture are lived everyday. Our staff encourage the growth of Jewish values in each of our campers, and our programming is carefully created to nurture a positive Jewish identity through all that we do.

We have fun. Our camps’ facilities are set in beautiful and unique landscapes across North America. Innovative and traditional programming ensure that our campers enjoy the full spectrum of all camp has to offer. From water-skiing and sailing to high-caliber sports instruction; from learning how to play the guitar to doing hands-on social action projects, each of our campers is given the opportunity to grow, create, explore, and have fun!

We have the future. Our 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.
