The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia strongly condemns hate speech in our community and throughout the world. When anti-Semitic hate speech was expressed by Temple University Professor Marc Lamont Hill, we immediately took action with national and local partners. We have and will continue to condemn comments that reject the state of Israel and the Jewish connection to our homeland.

Children at a Jewish camp
Summer camp is about so much more than campfires and color war. Kids get the chance to explore who they are—and who they want to become.

Campers are bunkmates and team players, creative problem-solvers and blossoming leaders. They develop independence and learn life skills, and they forge deep and meaningful connections to Judaism that are key to building Jewish identity.

A Camp for Everyone

From artists to athletes to just plain kids, there’s a camp for everyone—campers with disabilities very much included. Are you new to the world of Jewish camping?
