Camp Bob Waldorf

About Kibbutz Bob Waldorf

Kibbutz Bob Waldorf is a Jewish, pluralistic, residential camp program for campers ages 9-15 that weaves core Jewish values into the fabric of camp. These core values, also known as the four pillars of camp are: Keshet (Inclusion), Kehillah (Community), Atzmi (Identity), and Kavod (Respect). Through typical camp activities, a special Shabbat t’filah on Friday nights, Israeli Dancing, song session, a unique, experiential Shabbat experience Saturday mornings, Havdallah, and Israel and Jewish education campers connect to their own Jewish identity, and to the larger Jewish community.

Campers live in a cabin with their peers, and two to three trained counselors, and spend the majority of their day experiencing exciting new camp activities together. Typical camp activities include swimming, archery, ropes course, and arts and crafts, and daily interactions with Jewish culture.    

We offer two specialized sessions for campers ages 12-15, Teen Camp and Kibbutz Explorations. Each program aims to provide campers with a new experience, catered to their interests and specific age group. Teen Camp, for 14 and 15 year olds, focuses on teaches values such as 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.
