Summer memories never fade — that first swim in the deep end, swinging on the ropes course, and songs sung around a crackling campfire.

Did you know UJA owns 505 acres of campgrounds that house the largest Jewish day camp program in North America? We’re now completely renovating these grounds and investing in programming and leadership training so that thousands of children — including those from low-income families and those with disabilities — can swim, play, and make friends at first-rate Jewish day camps.

Summer camp is where Jewish values and connections come alive. Watch and learn more.


Every year, thanks to our support, 16,000 children enjoy meaningful Jewish experiences at summer camps across New York. Friendships and skills endure, so we’ll help you find the camp that’s right for your child. Questions? Contact us.
