Summer camp has been a tradition with Jewish families in the USA for a long time, so a lot of camps have some kind of Jewish connection. This could mean that the camp was started by a Jewish family, so it's based on Jewish tradition, or it could be a camp that is run by an American Jewish organisation, so Jewish tradition will play a big part of how the camp runs. All campers will come from a Jewish background and will have a variety of Jewish commitment. Camp America works with hundreds of Jewish camps in the USA. Almost all Jewish camps that work with Camp America follow a 'traditional' Jewish programme (not religious or orthodox - although these camps are available as well) that offer Kosher meals and a Shabbat programme on Friday nights and Saturdays. We understand that different applicants will have different levels of Jewish commitment, and we will work hard to ensure that you are placed at a Jewish camp where you will feel comfortable and happy.
