Jewish Camping Initiative

Camp Coleman

From generation to generation enriching Jewish lives since 1964, URJ Camp Coleman allows our children to live a wholly Jewish life while at camp. Campers can experience Jewish culture and tradition while in a safe, challenging and fun environment. In a natural setting, campers are given the opportunity to explore their Judaism.

Camp Coleman provides a creative setting for Jewish living and learning, through camp programming. At Camp Coleman campers and staff can develop lifelong friendships! 6 Points Science and Technology Academy

The URJ 6 Points Science and Technology Academy is held in Boston, MA, and serves upwards of 600 campers in grades 5–9 over three two-week sessions per summer.

The URJ 6 Points Science and Technology Academy will build on the growing interest in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) and serve as an on-ramp into Jewish camping for unaffiliated and currently unengaged Jewish families who have not been attracted to the classic Jewish summer camp model.

Located in Greensboro, North Carolina, 6 Points Sports Academy is housed on the 100-acre, state-of-the-art athletic and camp facilities of the American Hebrew Academy.

At 6 Points, young Jewish athletes from all over North America participate in a unique camping experience that offers top-level sports training and all the beloved traditions of Reform Jewish camping. Within this community, campers form friendships for life and achieve a higher quality of life as young Jewish athletes. 6 Points campers are athletes, ranging in age from 10–16, (entering 5th–11th grade), who are looking to improve their game, meet new friends and explore their own Jewish identity.
