Jewish Camp

Jewish camp is about so much more than campfires, color war and bug juice. It’s camp with a soul. It weaves together Jewish values, culture and traditions into the fabric of camp, helping campers to connect to their own identity and the larger Jewish community—while having all the great summer-camp experiences they’ll remember forever.


Donate to Jewish Camp

The impact of Jewish camp is immediate and long-lasting. Campers return home connected to the Jewish community and friendships that will last them a lifetime.

Jewish Federation of Northern New Jersey is committed to increasing the number of children in our area who attend Jewish overnight camp. We know that Jewish camp is a transformative experience for the children who attend, and will positively impact the Jewish community as a whole.

Jewish camp is more affordable than ever. First time overnight campers have an opportunity to save big: with a One Happy Camper incentive grant up to $1,000.
