Youth & Teen Programs

From summer camps to youth groups, teen-powered social action to travel programs in Israel and around the world, there is a place for every young person to connect, learn, grow, and have fun.

For more than 75 years, the Union for Reform Judaism has provided young people with immersive Jewish experiences that transform and enrich lives. Based in Reform Jewish values, these programs provide nurturing, educational, and fun experiences that promote community, enhance spiritual growth, cultivate Jewish identity, and foster lifelong friendships.
