A Typical Day

URJ Camp Newman is proud to offer a wide variety of programs and activities each day. From sports to arts to adventure to Jewish celebrations and learning, our campers have the opportunity to build new skills and challenge themselves through unique and exciting experiences.

Each eidah (session) has its own daily schedule with programs tailored exclusively to each camper’s age group.

While activities vary from day to day and surprises are often thrown in, every day includes plenty of time for fun, friendship, and relaxation.
