Capital Camps



The daily schedule followed at these Jewish camps balances camper choice, cabin activities and campwide programs, with special attention paid to the needs of the various age groups. Boys and girls participate in individual and team sports, arts and crafts, the performing arts, aquatics and outdoor education. Older campers take a three-day adventure hiking trip on the Appalachian Trail.
