From lifelong friendships, to greater independence, to a strengthened Jewish identity, to unforgettable memories, we believe in the positive impact of Jewish summer camp and its ability to sustain Jewish communities.
There is a URJ sleepaway camps for every interest – take a look below. And because we want our youth to experience the magic of camp, both Central and the Foundation of Jewish Camp have scholarships available for new and returning campers.
Crane Lake and Eisner Camp
For years, URJ Crane Lake Camp and Eisner Camp have embodied the transformative power of Jewish camping. Children from URJ congregations across the Northeast join together each summer to experience the fun and magic of this special community.
URJ 6 Points Sci-Tech Academy East
Scientific inquiry meets fun! Campers entering grades 5-10 spend two weeks exploring robotics, video game design, environmental science, digital media, and a host of other fun activities in a friendly setting with campers who share similar interests.
URJ 6 Points Sports Academy
This camp is North America’s premier Jewish sports camp located in Asheville, NC on the state-of-the-art athletic and camp facilities of the Asheville School. At 6 Points, Jewish athletes from across +33 states and 7 countries participate in a unique camping experience that combines top-level sports coaching and the beloved traditions of Reform Jewish camping. Within our kind and nurturing community, campers form lifelong friendships, feed their passion for their chosen sport, and strengthen their identity as Jewish athletes. Sports majors include: basketball, baseball, softball, tennis, soccer, girls lacrosse, boys lacrosse, swimming, gymnastics, golf, cheer & dance, girls volleyball, and sports journalism.
URJ 6 Points Creative Arts Academy
Participants are drawn together in a dynamic artistic community to experience camp, explore their passions, and improve their skills. With the guidance from mentors within the field, compelling role models who weave Jewish values, ethics, and tradition into their arts disciplines, campers challenge themselves to continue their development as artists, refining their natural abilities and acquiring new skills.
One Happy Camper
The Foundation for Jewish Camp offers incentive grants, ranging from $700 to $1,000, to campers attending a nonprofit, Jewish, overnight camp for the first time. Some programs also offer grants for returning campers.
We believe that finances should never stand in the way of our students’ ability to participate in enriching programs — such as URJ sleepaway camp. The LCLJ Scholarship Committee will review all applications. Apply here.
Central Family Incentive
For our returning camp families, Central will pay $250 toward camp tuition for you and every new family you recruit for a URJ overnight camp this year. Please contact Mirit Sands once both the new and returning family have enrolled in a camp session.
Today more than ever we rely on you to support our educational, community, and spiritual programs that are so important to Central members and the Jewish community-at-large. If you are able, please support our Annual Yom Kippur Appeal today with a tax-deductible contribution.
