Camp Emeth

Camp Emeth is the day camp at Congregation Shaare Emeth. It is an 8-week long program open to children K-8. At Camp Emeth, campers of all ages have the opportunity to learn new skills, make new friends, and enjoy traditional and innovative camp activities. Our goal is to provide a safe, nurturing camp environment where children can learn about their world, discover their strengths and feel connected to our community in the context of Reform Judaism.

Camp Emeth staff starts in 9th grade in a Counselor in Training program and continues through assistant counselor, and a senior counselor starting at the age of 18.
