Camp Yavneh

Imparting Jewish Knowledge and Passion for 75 Years.

Camp Yavneh, situated on 65 acres of woodlands and waterfront in southern New Hampshire, has been a destination for three generations. Now in its seventh decade, Camp Yavneh blends state of the art camp programming in an environment that makes Jewish traditions come to life. Many of our current Yavneh campers explore and experience how much fun living Jewishly can be.

Yavneh campers quickly realize the many aspects of Judaism that are common to all Jews. This is what sets Yavneh apart, being part of Klal Yisrael. Whether at a Havdalah or a Jewish songfest, Judaism and Hebrew permeate the program in such a way that all camp activities can ultimately be placed in a more meaningful context, showing campers that living Jewishly can be fun.
