About Our Summer Camp
Our mission is to inspire kids to take camp home – applying their Jewish learning to their daily lives, bettering themselves, their communities and the world.
Our Summer Programs
We have a variety of programs for all ages. Each program is specially tailored to the age group and the interests of the campers!
Activities and Fun
Camp Newman offers a wide variety of activities to let each camper learn and explore new skills, while enjoying themselves in a friendly environment.
Other than us (yeah, we admit it … we’re biased!), no one is more passionate about camp than our campers, staff and alumni.
