Camp Be'chol Lashon is the only multicultural Jewish overnight camp. In addition to activities like kayaking and canoeing, the unique thing about Camp Be’chol Lashon is our innovative curriculum, Passport to Peoplehood, that centers on the vision of Jews as a global multicultural people. Each day campers use their ‘passports’ to ‘travel’ to a different country to encounter Judaism through the history and culture of the Jewish community in that region. Using text, dance, music, film, art, and cooking, the Camp Be’chol Lashon travel-the-world approach allows campers to learn experientially.
Our diverse Camp Be’chol Lashon staff foster global Jewish identity development in a safe, nurturing environment. A more expansive vision of the Jewish people coincides with the world-view of younger generations of Jews who have increased access to technology, and for whom being Jewish is one of many identities. Campers develop Jewish friendship circles and build a deeper connection to Jewish life through diverse programming that reflects the multiple identities of contemporary Jews. Our goal is to foster cultural competence, giving children the skills to successfully navigate life as proud Jews and global citizens.
