Camp isn’t only for kids anymore. Parents, grandparents, and other family members can now join in all the fun of Camp.

Our Family Camp program has something for everyone: swimming in our heated pool and boating on our private pond, singing and dancing to great Jewish music, flying across the zip line, experiencing vibrant and engaging Judaism, celebrating Shabbat like in no other place, and exploring the beautiful surroundings of our 120 wooded acres in the mountains. We are proud to welcome all kinds of families to Family Camp. Whether you are a family with a mother and father or two mothers, a family committed to traditional Judaism or one rooted in progressive values, we can’t wait to have you as part of our Camp community.

We’re proud to welcome members of the Jewish Deaf community to join us for Family Camp! ASL interpreters are provided throughout the week, so all members of the Family Camp community – both deaf and hearing – can participate fully.

Camp Havaya is a truly extraordinary place—your kid will feel part of something bigger than themselves, and they’ll want to experience that magic year after year.

Camp JRF is now Camp Havaya.

Worry not! We have a new name but, deep down, we’re still the same incredibly diverse and welcoming community where kids explore Judaism in their own ways and become the best versions of themselves.
