Temple Beth Shalom believes strongly in the importance of Jewish camps. The bonding experience of camp not only builds a long-lasting taste and yearning for community, it also creates habits of Jewish practice. In fact, research shows that adults who were campers tend to stay more involved than non-campers in Jewish communities and are more likely to find comfort and to take part in Jewish rituals as they age.
No student should be denied the opportunity to experience a Jewish summer camp due to financial limitations. To help make Jewish summer experiences possible for all students, Temple Beth Shalom offers partial scholarships based on financial need.
