Camp Shomria US

Be part of a group, take ownership over your life and community.

Hashomer Hatzair is a progressive Zionist youth movement that was established 100 years ago and specializes in youth-led experiential Jewish education. Based on the values of equity, community, and social responsibility, our camps, and activities encourage youth to shape their communities and find personal relevance in Judaism, Jewish peoplehood, and Israel.

Camp Shomria engages year-round participants at our campsite in Upstate New York. We grow vegetables, get our eggs from our chickens and, take care of goats. Most of our electricity is supplied by solar panels. Our campers experience the beautiful wilderness of the Catskills, learn important scouting skills, make life-long friends, and are part of a caring and meaningful community.

The games that we play, the way we take care of our camp, and the interaction we have with nature all contribute to the holistic nature of our education.

*We welcome transgender, intersex, non-binary and gender-non conforming campers

Roni Ziv

Roni first came to Camp Shomria in 2009 when she was just 10 years old. Since then, she has grown up every summer and throughout the year in this movement that holds a special place in her heart. Roni has spent the last 5 years living in Israel in various kibbutzim in the north and volunteering in the IDF as a Social Work Officer, where she got to meet and help different populations within Israel. She is passionate about returning to Camp in this special role for her to make a difference in a new way she hasn’t yet experienced. It warms my heart to return to the place that shaped me to be who I am today. I am excited to work with the hadracha, campers, parents, and our whole beautiful moshava community! Feel free to reach out, I am always happy to chat :)
