Description

Camp Havaya is all about the joy of summer camp with the freedom to be who you truly are. In our incredibly diverse and accepting community, all kids—no matter their race, sexual orientation, gender identity, family structure, or Jewish background—are more than welcomed. They’re celebrated!

We’re a Reconstructionist community where campers are encouraged to explore traditions and today’s world to discover what being Jewish means to them. Their different experiences and perspectives are a big part of what makes our camp so amazing.

Plus, with so many activities—from the high-ropes challenge course to learning a new song, from the trampoline in our lake to any number of sports—the biggest challenge at Camp Havaya is figuring out what’s the most fun!
