Staying Connected

Welcome to our Staying Connected to FUN resource page, one-stop-shop for all the fun, campy activities available to your family. We’ll be updating this page a few times a week with virtual gatherings, song-sessions, resources for “off screen” activities, and ways for you to stay to connected to our Camp Newman family.


Bring your matzah-pizza, connect with your camp friends and meet new ones in your Summer 2020 eidah (session) in our first Shabbat Schmooze on Zoom on Saturday, April 11th at 12PM PST! We’ll have a camp staff member in zoom rooms for each eidah (session or age-group) to lead mixers, games and teach the session cheer.

Missing camp song sessions?! So are we! For two amazing nights, Camp Newman songleaders from past and present will come together for the ULTIMATE Camp Song Session!

Join us to rock out and sing along at 7 PM PDT on Sundays, April 19th and 26th and then we will transition into our regular Havdalah & Siyum. Can’t wait to see you there, you won’t want to miss these special events!

Did you know that Shabbat doesn’t have to end on Saturday nights?  In these uncertain times, let’s soak up the peacefulness of Shabbat and make it last a little longer (technically, Shabbat can last until Tuesday evenings!) Havdalah is a beautiful way to mark the end of Shabbat and beginning of a new week. Join us for an inspiring, restoring Havdalah and Siyum every Sunday evening!

Bo-Bo-Bo-BOKER TOV! Start your day off Camp Newman-style every Monday morning on Facebook Live or on Zoom (no social media necessary)!  Stretch and sing Modeh Ani or Mah Tovu, learn a new milat hayom (hebrew word of the day), and soak up some ruach (spirit) to last you through the day!

Join us every Thursday night on Facebook Live or Zoom and feel the magic of a virtual camp-hug and the best way to end a day. We’ll sing Shema & Hashkiveynu and end with a kavanah (intention) for self-care!

We will NOT be streaming live during Passover.
Please enjoy this beautiful Siyum from Summer 2007!
