URJ 6 Points Sports Academy

Greensboro, NC

Six Points Sports Academy, the newest URJ camp, rents their summer home from the American Hebrew Academy, a private, pluralistic Jewish boarding school in North Carolina. As renters, Six Points has limited control over facilities, but they have worked with AHA to engage on environmental issues and adopted a wide variety of environmentally sustainable operating procedures. AHA produces geothermal energy on-site to meet some of its energy needs, and captures and recycles water from across campus to avoid waste. They use reusable dishes and will be moving to all recycled paper goods this year.

Turn off the light signAHA focuses on environmental consciousness and this mindset carries over to Six Points Camp. Six Points is founded on six values including tikkun olam, and will focus on incorporating environmentalism into this value set in summers to come. Six Points campers and staff love to be outdoors and connect with nature, and their environmental education program will build on this strong foundation.
