Camp Ben Frankel

Safety first. Small camp with a big impact. Inclusive, welcoming, and pluralist.

CBF’s mission is to build a lifelong camp family for Jewish children from all backgrounds to explore their identities in an inclusive and welcoming environment, one amazing summer at a time. We offer both overnight and virtual camp options.

At CBF we combine the wisdom of industry best-practices, experienced leadership, strategic partnerships, and an innovative approach to programming that has garnered international media attention. In 2019, CBF offered more than 100 high-quality activities and was named to Chicago Parent Magazine’s list of 10 amazing camps. Safety always comes first and by summer we will have reinvented our entire catalog of activities to ensure that can be safely run during Covid.
