Greening URJ Camps

Outdoor TeachingWe're proud that our thirteen camps are already so deeply engaged in environmental education and programming, and we're delighted to highlight a number of the environmental projects that are taking place around our camps and in our Israel programs this summer.

In particular, this summer our camps are focusing on making their food healthier and more sustainable; reducing waste through recycling and composting; and enhancing environmental education.
