URJ Summer Camps
Eisner and Crane Lake Summer Camps
A Jewish over-night summer camp experience is among the best things one can do to build, maintain, and strengthen Jewish identity. Moreover, spending a summer at camp is fun! While there are several Jewish camps available, we encourage our children to attend our Reform Movement's camps, Eisner and Crane Lake. These camps provide a creative setting for Jewish living and learning through camp programming. They are places where your children will make lifelong friends, embrace new experiences, and explore what being Jewish means to them. We invite you to find out more about Eisner and Crane Lake Camps and their commitment to providing your child with fun, safe and unforgettable summer experiences. For more information, please visit the camp website.

URJ Kutz Camp
The URJ Kutz Camp - NFTY Leadership Center is part of the greater URJ Camping and NFTY system. Many of the participants come only once or twice to develop their leadership skills in order to return to one's home Temple Youth Group, NFTY Region, or Regional URJ Camp. Reform Jewish teenagers from across North America who are entering the 10th - 12th grades attend Kutz Camp located in Warwick NY. For more information, please visit the camp website.
Mitzvah Corps allows Reform Jewish teens to experience social action at its best. The program combines direct hands-on involvement in communities that need the energy, dedication, and love that youth provide with programs rooted in Jewish social and ethical issues.
Participants will have the chance to live communally with other teens and build their own community, while at the same time engaging in meaningful social justice work, and having fun! For more information about Mitzvah Corps, call 212.650.4071 or check out their website.

Attention Summer Campers
Congregation Bínai Shalom is again offering camp scholarships to those members whose children are planning to attend Jewish summer camps this summer. Last year we provided scholarships for 20 of our members and are hoping to increase that number this year. The Freelander Scholarship Fund has been extended again this year. This fund has provided four $1500 scholarships for children who are attending Jewish summer camp for the first time. These scholarships are being provided to any camper who is a member of CBS, is enrolled and regularly attends religious school at CBS (80% attendance), and plans to attend an approved Jewish camp program (the CBS scholarships are limited to Kutz, Eisner or Crane Lake Camps, and 6 Points Sci-Tech Academy) for at least 1 full session. To apply for a scholarship please send a copy of your camp registration form to the School Committee, attention Cheryl Kasof. All applications must be in by March 1st and will be reviewed by the youth committee at that time. Families will be informed about the amount of each award in early March. The awards will be paid directly to the camp. If you have any questions please contact , Youth Educator.
