Our Mission: Inspiring a Love of Judaism, 365 days a year
URJ Camp Newman takes the magic of camp, translates it into a year-round experience, and brings it you!
URJ Camp Newman offers an expanded menu of fun, immersive Jewish experiences, 365 days a year. Our mission is to become a year-round hub for Jewish engagement—broadcasting the top hits from our camp playlist, far and wide, all year. We accomplish this through three key offerings:
From our popular summer camp in Santa Rosa, to social action corps nationwide, to educational trips to Israel, our summer programs empower children, teens and adults to better themselves, their communities, and the world.
We offer meaningful Jewish experiences for all ages, all year, in Santa Rosa and beyond! Inspired by the magic of camp, our programs foster a love of Judaism while connecting you to our local and global Jewish community.
Nestled in the wine country, our Retreat & Conference Center is the perfect setting for your corporate, congregational or family retreat. Enjoy multiple indoor and outdoor spaces, acres of hiking trails, and more.
Rooted in Jewish Values
Our summer and year-round programs are rooted in the Jewish principles of:
- Tikkun Olam, bettering our world
- Tikkun Middot, bettering ourselves
- Gimilute Chasadim, acts of loving kindness
- Betzelem Elohim, all humans are created in a divine image
- Talmud Torah, love of learning for learning sake
- Ahavat Israel, love of Israel
These timeless, universal values form the backbone of every program we plan, anchoring each event in our Jewish tradition. It’s just one way we make Judaism relevant, accessible and meaningful today.
