Thank you for giving to support Kadima at…

Camp PembrokeCamp Tel NoarCamp Tevya

Your tax-deductible contribution will support Kadima, the Teen Leadership Program at Camp Pembroke, Camp Tel Noar, and Camp Tevya. In Hebrew, “Kadima” means “to move forward, to advance.” Building on 86 years of expertise—and best practices from Jewish camps around the nation—Kadima advances the opportunities for camp teens while moving camp forward with a more experienced, skilled staff for our campers.

Here’s why Kadima is so important:

Today’s young adults seek meaningful, positive growth.

While juggling the race for school and college, they must avoid what’s called “toxic stress.” Ahead of joining the workforce, they want real-life, hands-on practice in 21st Century skills like responsible decision-making, communication, and relationship building.

Today’s campers need skilled, caring role models.

For every generation, Jewish camp shapes and nurtures lifelong Jewish community. Campers rely on their experienced, engaged, highly-trained staff role models. By growing into young leaders, teens “pay it forward” for the campers who follow. Did you know? Our camps now require 30% MORE counselors than in the 1970’s/80’s: we offer many more activities and attend ever-more-carefully to children’s social/emotional well-being.

What’s involved?

  • A new framework for community and growth
  • Dedicated facilities: an eco-friendly Yurt Village
  • Visionary supporters to meet the $2 million goal covering program and facilities at all three camps…like YOU!
