One of the most powerful Jewish experiences a young person can have is a Jewish summer camp experience.
Jewish camps create a positive sense of identity and wonderful memories that last a life time. Camp Newman has been a favorite of Bet Haverim children and teens for decades, and is operated by the Union for Reform Judaism (URJ) in the Santa Rosa area. Due to the 2017 Tubbs Fire, which destroyed many buildings at the Camp site, the Camp has relocated to Vallejo. Due to the novel coronavirus pandemic, URJ has announced they are not operating summer camps in 2020.
Learn more about the camp, its programs, its history and its approach to engaging Jewish youth. Watch this special video about life at Camp Newman.

This investment in the Jewish future is a particularly meaningful way to celebrate a simcha, honor a loved one, or simply to offer tzedakah to our community.
