We are thrilled to offer an in-person experience for summer 2021. While there are programs we hope to be able to provide, we know that we will be here to engage your campers, help them grow and create a community.
For the 2021 camp season, registration will be open to campers entering kindergarten through 5th grade.
At this time, we will be following the COVID-19 Policies & Procedures approved by Congregation Shaare Emeth.
Policies & Procedures may change at any time as the pandemic evolves.
A few helpful registration details…

Camp Emeth recognizes that campers have all different types of needs. We strive to meet every camper where they are with the support they need to ensure a successful camp experience. We realize that kids have trouble maintaining their best behavior all day long. This can be hard for many campers, but especially hard for those who have challenges.
We have an inclusion specialist full-time to support campers who might need some extra help from time to time. We like to be proactive by identifying those campers prior to camp. We will meet as a team to create an ICP (Individualized Camper Plan) that will prepare and guide our staff so your camper can enjoy the summer.
