Here at Temple Bat Yahm we believe in sending out kids and teens to Jewish Summer Camp! Jewish summer camps fuse the activities, friendships, and communal life of traditional camps with the Jewish values, role models and culture our shared heritage. This uniquely immersive experience provides a confidence-building opportunity in which campers experience joy and discovery in a communal Jewish setting. Below please find Jewish Summer Camps and who to contact if you have questions. You can also click on the Camp's logo to learn more.


Since 1952, Wilshire Boulevard Temple Camps have been providing a dynamic and fun environment where campers and staff become part of a community. We strive to build a place where everyone is equal and included, supported and cared for, connected and challenged. Wilshire Boulevard Temple Camps provide children a better understanding of their Jewish background while giving them a summer they will never forget.

At URJ Camp Newman, we work together year-round to build a community of acceptance, where we role model positive behaviors, and acknowledge that each and every member of the community is vital and important. With our wide variety of programs and activities, no day is ever the same! From sports to arts to Jewish celebrations, each camp day brings new excitement, new opportunities to build skills, and new adventures.  As campers get older and move into Teen Camp and more specialized sessions, they have the opportunity to dive deeper into areas of interest by selecting a major or a track.

At 6 Points West Specialty Camps, campers can choose either the Science & Technology track or the Arts track to focus on developing their own skills and passions while using that field to also explore their Judaism.  Staff guide our campers to see their area of focus as a portal through which to connect to our tradition, understanding it in new and personal ways.  At 6 Points West, that can mean a science experiment during services as an interpretation of a prayer or performing a scene from previously mounted work to illustrate a Jewish value.

At 6 Points we encourage campers to learn more about living a Jewish life through camp activities, friendships, and sports.  We create a place where campers and staff can possess a deep commitment both to living active meaningful Jewish lives and nurturing outstanding athletic ability through a unique sports camp experience.  We welcome campers aged 4th-11th grade into our camp and hope to increase the percentage of campers and adults from the Reform movement that participates in our camp annually.
