Welcome to Camp Alonim, a vibrant place where children thrive and Judaism comes alive. Here, the beauty of Judaism infuses every day – whether our campers are hiking with their counselors at sunrise, making a Havdalah candle in the art room, singing after lunch, learning Torah with creative educators, climbing on our adventure course while friends cheer, Israeli folk dancing as the sun sets, sharing stories around a campfire, or simply enjoying the unique tranquility and community of an Alonim Shabbat. At Alonim, campers can safely experience new things, grow, practice gemilut chasadim, and have an incredible amount of fun.
We welcome families and campers who come from all backgrounds and levels of Jewish observance. Because we are a community camp and not affiliated with a particular movement or denomination, you will find many different kinds of families here—each with its own way of identifying with Judaism.
In our history of 65 summers and counting, over 30,000 "Alonimers" have called camp their home away from home. Alonimers often have a passionate love for Jewish culture, a sense of responsibility to the community at large, and the hardy confidence that only comes from the unique experience of Jewish camping. Many alumni have gone on to become leaders in the community, including a number of prominent rabbis, educators, artists, and social entrepreneurs. Perhaps the best endorsement of Alonim is that every year, many of our alumni delight in sending their own children here.
I grew up attending Camp Alonim and now have the distinct honor of taking care of it along with some of the most dedicated and caring staff members on the planet. All year long, our team strives to recreate the enriching, safe, and formative experience that has made Alonim such a special place for so many for so long. It is difficult to translate camp's warmth, joy, and caring in a website, so I invite you to visit us at an open house or contact our office to discuss the Alonim experience. Better yet, if you know any Alonimers, I encourage you to ask them about camp and watch for the gleam in their eye.
See you at camp,
