Camper Policies, Care, & Safety

Camp Alonim is proud to be a pluralistic Jewish kehila (community) of different ages, denominations, backgrounds, languages, and abilities. Alonim campers and staff include Jews of various ethnic, cultural, and religious backgrounds including Ashkenzai, Conservative Movement, Israeli, Jews by choice, Jews of Color, Mizrahi, Orthodox, Persian, Reconstructionist, Reform, Russian, Sephardic, and more. When you’re part of a community like this — one that accepts, and encourages everyone’s strengths — it’s life changing. Campers and staff learn about themselves, relate to others, form a family of friends they’ll have for life, and of course, have a lot of fun along the way! Camp Alonim is committed to creating a mentally, emotionally, socially, and physically safe environment for all campers. We strive to build in our campers the ability to face adversity, build resilience and independence, and thrive. Alonim seeks to be a home for Jews from all of these diverse backgrounds, both as campers and as role models on staff. Campers will learn about the diversity of the Jewish world through experiential education and create a culture of celebration of tradition shared by Jews from around the world.

Camp Alonim welcomes campers of all backgrounds, denominational affiliation, gender identity, race, color, national or ethnic origin, citizenship status, sexual orientation, or socio-economic status, including those with a range of intellectual, emotional, and physical abilities.
