70th Anniversary Celebration

You’re Invited to Celebrate Our 70th
on July 16, 2017! 

Whether you went to Camp Saratoga, Camp Swig or Camp Newman, Camp has been a magical home to tens of thousands of campers, faculty and staff for decades. Come celebrate our anniversary as one community on Sunday, July 16, 2017, from 2pm-7pm, at URJ Camp Newman! 

In the 70 years since our first west coast Jewish camp was established and in the 20 years since Camp Newman began, we have shared unforgettable moments, made precious friendships, and started new traditions that continue to this day.

We hope you can join us for this special event to commemorate seven decades of Jewish camping, and to recognize and honor the camp alumni who have impacted our lives.

Make for yourself a teacher; acquire for yourself a friend. Who is wise? One who learns from all people.

Who is honored? One who honors others. – Pirkei Avot
