Bais Chana Jewish Un-Camp

A judgment-free zone for independent-thinking Jewish teen girls like you

The Jewish UnCamp is an inclusive, open-minded program where Jewish teens girls, 15-19, explore Judaism, expand their minds and meet their new best friends from around the world. Hike the great outdoors, paint to your heart’s content, go kayaking or drum with new friends, try your hand at ceramics, do slam poetry and comedy improv, and get your handwriting analyzed. Sample the nightly “Question Box” session: What does it mean to be a Jew today and why should I care? What should we do about antisemitism? What does Judaism say about anxiety and depression, love and marriage, technology and culture, gender issues and world peace? What are our responsibilities to ourselves and to others?
