In the fall of 2017, the Union for Reform Judaism evaluated whether Reform Movement youth experiences – NFTY, URJ Camps, and congregational teen experiences – have a lasting impression into adulthood, as alumni who embrace Jewish life as a path to meaning, purpose, and joy and shape a more whole, just, and compassion world in our congregations and beyond.
Summer Youth Experiences
December 14, 2020
These all-new winter sessions are perfect for families to enjoy high-quality, remote Jewish experiences that speak to them, on a schedule that works for their life. New, unaffiliated families will be connected with URJ congregations in their area – like yours!
We know that providing our youth with precious experiences transforms their lives and their families’ lives and strengthens our congregations and Movement forever. Here are a few updates on our summer 2021 plans.
In March 2020, when the Reform Movement made the difficult-but-necessary, values-based decision to cancel in-person camp for the summer, our team immediately began looking toward the summer of 2021.
This summer was unlike any in our lifetime. While we’re incredibly thankful that Jewish youth were able to experience camp from home, we're thrilled to announce plans for in-person programming in summer 2021.
