Camp Bob Waldorf

Overview

Kibbutz Bob Waldorf on the Max Straus Campus is a residential, pluralistic Jewish camp for youth ages 9-17 that fosters growth and development in a fun, safe and nurturing environment. Our program is built upon four core pillars: Kehillah (Community), Inclusion (Keshet), Identity (Atzmi), and Respect (Kavod). While at camp, campers live out these values in their daily lives through interactions with other campers, learning new skills and making lasting memories.

Campers live in a cabin with their peers, and two to three trained counselors, and spend the majority of their day experiencing exciting camp activities together that include a combination of:

  • Sports – basketball, soccer, football, Ga-Ga, archery, and more
  • Challenge Course – team building exercises, climbing wall, high ropes course
  • Arts – arts and crafts, drama, singing, dance, video
  • Ranch – horseback riding, hiking, animal care, nature, farm-to-table cooking
  • Swimming
  • …and lots more!

Through all these activities and interactions, our campers discover new skills and interests, and learn to be responsible and thoughtful individuals.

Campers ages 12-15 progress into specialized programs with new experiences catered to their interests and stage of development. Teen Camp, for camper 14 and 15 years old, focuses on teaching values such as tikkun olam (social action) and offers leadership skills and community service opportunities, interspersed with typical camp activities. Kibbutz Explorations, for 12 – 15 year olds, offers an opportunity to learn new skills in a specific area of interest. Campers will choose from core programs such as farm-to-table cooking, outdoor adventure, performing arts, and technology, and will spend the majority of their time at camp learning and growing within these tracks.

We are committed to making camp financially accessible to kids from all backgrounds through our heavily subsidized program.  Additional financial assistance is available to those in need of extra support.
