The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia is committed to providing essential resources during the international crisis caused by the COVID-19 Coronavirus. We are coordinating with all Jewish-affiliated organizations, schools, synagogues and agencies in the region to assess and address emerging needs.

Jewish Summer 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? Download the Parent’s Guide to Jewish Camp as well as Finding the Right Jewish Camp for Your Child with Special Needs
