Camp Ga’avah (Pride), is a Jewish one week day camp for LGBTQ+ youth and their allies. Camp Ga’avah will be a safe place for youth of all sexual orientations and gender identities to build strong relationships and confidence, and to learn skills to better navigate their individual journeys.
Camp Ga’avah will include traditional activities plus support, leadership training, and traditional camp fun! Jewish culture will be a component - campers will celebrate Shabbat as a community, learn Jewish values and participate in Tikkun Olam projects.
Once the summer is over, Camp Ga’avah programing will not end. Year round programming will include Jewish holiday celebrations, Shabbat dinners, educational classes, and support groups in an LGBTQ-friendly environment. These programs will provide connection to the Jewish community and other families who have similar life experiences.
