URJ Camp Kalsman

The best place for a summer of fun, friendships of a lifetime, and an unparalleled Jewish experience!

Campers from across the Pacific Northwest – Oregon, British Columbia, Alaska, Montana, Idaho, and Washington – call Camp Kalsman home. We are committed to our six core values: friendship, kehilah kedoshah (sacred community), Reform Jewish identity, chesed (kindness), connection to Israel, and our relationship to teva (nature). Camp Kalsman’s 300 beautiful acres offer a great balance of education and recreation. We practice active Jewish education, which incorporates Judaism into many different activities. Our campers learn new skills and hone existing ones in athletic, aquatic, artistic, and nature programs. Camp Kalsman is the premiere Jewish camp in the Pacific Northwest. We can’t wait to welcome you home!

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

Meet The Director

David Berkman

David Berkman spent his first summer at camp when he was just six years old and hasn't looked back since!
