Habonim Dror Camp Galil

You send them to Camp Galil, we teach them how to build a better world.

At Camp Galil, we do instill Jewish values and build Jewish identity while teaching leadership skills and empowering campers to be social justice activists. Kids who want to help shape their own summer experience will find a home at Camp Galil. Parents who want to foster independence and confidence love the way Galil nurtures their kids and inspires them to make the world a better place.

Camp Galil is a progressive Zionist, rustic overnight Jewish summer camp for campers in 2nd-11th grade with a strong focus on social justice and youth leadership. Located in Bucks County, PA, we focus on cooperative living and welcome families from all streams of Jewish life to create a diverse and inclusive community. Camp Galil’s youth leadership model empowers our talented counselors to design all aspects of our summer fun and educational program, and our historic partnership with the Habonim Dror youth movement connects our campers and staff with Habonim Dror youth members from around the world. Our campers and staff come together to create a joyful and energetic community built on Jewish values, a connection to Israel, and social justice for a summer of amazing fun and to build a better world together.
