From the youngest day campers to the oldest counselors-in-training, each child who spends a summer at a URJ camp returns home a little wiser, a little more self-confident, and a little more connected to the Jewish community. A summer at a URJ camp is more than a summer of fun. A summer at a URJ camp is meant to last a lifetime. In the Northeast, the URJ offers the following camp experiences:
