The Reform movement sponsors twelve overnight summer camps around the country. Most students from Temple Israel attend one of the two camps located in the Berkshire region of Massachusetts. However all twelve provide campers with rewarding, challenging, and pleasant experiences in a religious environment. Activities include traditional camp activities like soccer, swimming, arts and crafts, and drama, but students have the chance to participate in unique Jewish learning and living opportunities not available at the Temple. Scholarships and grants from the Temple, as well as outside donors help supplement the costs.

Grades 9-12 - http://kutz.urjcamps.org/ Kutz Camp_Logo
High school students who are too old to attend traditional summer camps have the opportunity to participate in one of four summer programs offered by the Reform movement:

Mitzvah Corps is for high school students interested in having the meaningful and exciting summer experience of engaging in community service projects in a particular community. The program gives teens the chance to make a difference and develop the sense of accomplishment and fulfillment that comes only with helping another person. Sites include San Francisco, Costa Rica, New Orleans, Israel, New Brunswick, NJ (Rutgers campus), and Warwick, NY (Kutz Teen Campus).

Kutz Teen Campus is a fun and exciting high school age environment where Reform Jewish teens can learn invaluable skills to better themselves as leaders in their home communities. The summer program, the NFTY Leadership Experience, is designed for students who are looking for a challenging, intense experience. Participants in this program are able to choose a major and electives in order to create a schedule that best fits their own goals and needs.
