About Pembroke

A Day in the Life of a Pembroke Camper

Daily and Shabbat schedule, along with evening activities and special events

Here’s what your schedule will look like most days – but there’s never an “ordinary” day at Camp Pembroke.

Some days we take a field trip, have a dance party, or go wild for Maccabiah or Color War!

Every girl also gets to personalize her Pembroke experience through LOTS of activities and electives.

Evening activities

S'Mores at Pembroke

As much fun as you’ll have during the day, you’ll look forward to evening activities, too. Every night, we plan something special: MTV night, College Night, Miss Israel, counselor hunt, dance parties, game shows, campfires, the annual Carnival, performances by our campers in the Theater Arts and Dance programs, and so much more.

Special events and trips

Pembroke Hike

Each summer, Camp Pembroke has special all-camp events like Color War, and welcomes entertainers, too.

Sometimes we head out to fun off-site camp excursions like hikes, movies, water parks, roller skating, and trampoline parks. Older campers may also take a special overnight trip specifically designed for them.

On the water, in the studio, and on the field or courts, there’s always something new to try!
