About Us

Home » About Us

Our mission:

inspiring a love of judaism 365 days a year!

 Here at Camp Newman, we work together year-round to build a community of acceptance, where we role model positive behaviors, and acknowledge that each and every member of the community is vital and important. We live by the value of  b’tzelem Elohim, which reminds us that each of us are created in the image of God meaning that each person at camp has a specific set of needs, wants, feelings, hopes, and dreams. We accomplish this through three key offerings:

summer programs

From Camp Newman in Santa Rosa, CA, to social action corps nationwide, to educational trips to Israel, our summer programs empower children, teens and adults to better themselves, their communities, and the world.

year-round programs

 We offer meaningful Jewish experiences for all ages, all year, across the Southwest & West Coast. Inspired by the magic of camp, our programs create paths to meaningful, relevant connection to Judaism, Jewish community and Jewish values.
