Welcome to URJ Camp Newman!
At URJ Camp Newman, we’re building a foundation for a vibrant and joyful Jewish life. Rooted in Jewish values and guided by our experienced staff, we offer fun, immersive summer sessions that give your child the opportunity to develop community, teamwork, self-esteem, and individual skill.
Activities include athletics, outdoor adventure sports, music, art, dance, leadership training, and social action. Campers celebrate their best selves, form lifelong friendships, and find a community where they belong.
There are so many amazing things to do: Conquering the Alpine Tower as a team. Seeing the final point scored in Ultimate Frisbee. Dancing together on Shabbat. Singing arm-in-arm every night before bed. Hiking to the Star that overlooks camp. Making more friends in a week than they could all year.
We believe that these transformative experiences inspire kids to bring camp home to their daily lives, applying what they learn here to better themselves, their communities and the world.
Rooted in Values
Our camp 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’s 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.
