At URJ Camp Newman in the beautiful hills of Santa Rosa, California, we’re building a foundation for a vibrant and joyful Jewish life. Rooted in Jewish values and guided by our experienced staff, we offer fun, immersive summer sessions that focus on developing community, teamwork, self-esteem, and individual skills. Activities include outdoor adventure sports, athletics, music, art, dance, leadership training, and social action. Campers celebrate their best selves, form lifelong friends, and find a community where they belong.
There are so many amazing things to do:
• Conquering the Alpine Tower and zip line.
• Seeing the final point scored in Ultimate Frisbee.
• Dancing together on Shabbat evening.
• Singing arm-in-arm every night before bed.
• Hiking to the Star that overlooks camp.
• Making more friends in a week than they could in a year.
We believe that these transformative experiences inspire kids to bring camp home to their daily lives, applying what they learn here to better themselves, their communities, and the world.
