Our Jewish Program

Camp Monroe is a multi-denominational traditional Jewish summer camp. Jewish activities are included in the schedule with the goal of increasing knowledge and instilling pride. Our ethos is to 'Expose, not Impose' - a focus that allows each parent and child to determine which Jewish activities they wish to involve themselves in.

We provide the facilities and support for all levels of observance, both daily and for Shabbat. Our food service is strictly certified Kosher.
