We look forward to welcoming you to #NewmanbytheBay at Cal Maritime! Please check the dates below for when we welcome visitors to camp.
An important word about visitors: Because of our summer home being here at Cal Maritime, Camp Newman now needs to pay for each additional visitor’s meal, parking, and related staffing. This is why we can no longer accept same-day registrations, or walk-ins, and why we must close registration for all events 24 hours before (or when we reach capacity). All visitors must pre-register for Shabbat dinner and special events (i.e. Hagigah festival) – no exceptions. Please be respectful of our camp community, our staff and our rules, and do not just show up unannounced!
Summer Visitor Dates
For Prospective Camper Families: We invite you to visit camp in session during a Prospective Camper Family Shabbat! See first-hand what makes our Shabbat festivities so magical, meaningful and unique – take a tour, join our t’fillah service, eat in our Dining Hall, join our Shabbat dancing party, and see camp in action! (This event is for families who do not have a camper in session during their visit.) Click your desired date below – July 12th or July 26th – to get more info & register.
For Current Camper Families: I’m sorry, but we do not allow parents to visit campers during their session as it can cause homesickness. Exceptions are for specific visitor events (see below) for families campers in Hagigah, Hevrah, Avodah or CIT.
For Synagogue Visitors: We invite synagogues and their communities to visit us on specific dates during the summer. If your synagogue is invited on a date when your child is in session at camp, we ask that you refrain from attending and visit us on another dates as to not disrupt your child’s experience or that of other children in their session.
