Of every experience a child has, summer camp is one of the most rewarding and influential, with benefits that last a lifetime. A summer at Camp Solomon Schechter raises self-confidence, builds decision-making skills, improves social skills, and enables a child to reach inside themselves and discover talents and abilities they never knew they had.
Jewish camping has been identified as one of the most important influences a child can have in building Jewish identity and commitment. In fact, studies show that a Jewish camp experience while young doubles the chances of having a strong Jewish identity as an adult.
At Camp Solomon Schechter we emphasize the values of integrity, derech eretz (respect) and tikkun olam (repairing the world). We do this through activities and learning based on movement and Teva (nature) to create our ideal Jewish community.
