Summer camps in the United States and the Jewish Faith have become quiet synonymous over the years and there is no reason Australians should miss out on all the fun! Jewish applicants could spend 9-12 weeks working at camps like URJ’s Camp Coleman or Camp Cedar Lake embracing their faith with Shabbat services and Maccabi Games, while enjoying the great outdoors and American summertime.

Former Camp America Participant, Sarah, explains her 2014 Camp America experience,“From Tish B’Av remembrance to Shabbat services, Epic Ga-Ga battles to the Havdalah services, I couldn’t have wished for a better gap year experience!”

Camp America will be holding their 2016 Kick Off sessions starting at the end of August and it is a perfect way to find more about the camps we work with and the experiences you will have while in the United States. The dates and locations are as follows:
