CAMP YAVNEH

Camp Yavneh welcomes and embraces Jews of all denominations. Yavneh is committed to creating an environment in which individuals’ identities will be safeguarded, but in which people will have the opportunity to engage, challenge and argue with each other. The Camp is committed to this ideal of interpersonal engagement, because through exposure and understanding people deepen their own self-understanding and connections to Jewish life and tradition through their appreciation of legitimate, alternative points of view.

Camp Yavneh is situated on 65 acres of woodlands and waterfront in southern New Hampshire, a short 90-minute drive from Boston. Our largest draw is in the New England states. We have quite a number from the New York/New Jersey area and the Baltimore/Washington area. In addition to those locations, we attract campers from many other states in the U.S. and some foreign countries. Now in its seventh decade, Yavneh integrates the traditional camp setting with a strong Judaic component. Many of our current Yavneh campers are second and third generation offspring whose parents or grandparents met at Yavneh.

Camp Yavneh is coed and for kids and teens ages 8-16. Activities include Hebrew and Judaic courses, sports, arts, nature, boating and swimming.

COHEN CAMPS
Jewish sleepaway camps: Pembroke, Tel Noar and Tevya

At Camps Pembroke, Tel Noar, and Tevya – the three Cohen Camps – your child age 7-16 will find all the magic of a Jewish camp summer: deep friendships; water, field, and court sports; arts, dance, and theatre; spirited Shabbats; special camp traditions …and so much fun! In Summer 2022, we’ll offer much-needed opportunities to laugh, cheer, listen, hug, share, and flourish, building on our track record of rigorous care for health and safety.

Our camps help youth develop skills, confidence, maturity, and lifelong communities. Parents say their children “feel strong,” like they “belong to something,” and “come home more confident, having made lifelong friends, growing ‘Jewishly,’ and proud of who they are.” A 2021 parent said that at camp, “Our child was the happiest he’s been all year. Truly a gift and a shining light after a very challenging year.”

Like its campers, each Cohen Camp shines with its own personality: Camp Pembroke (camppembroke.org) is just for girls, while Camp Tel Noar (camptelnoar.org) (smaller) and Camp Tevya (camptevya.org) (larger) are co-ed. All are kosher, family run since 1935, and ACA Accredited.

All first-time campers qualify for a Cohen Camps tuition discount. For younger first-timers, Camp Tel Noar offers 5-night mini-sessions and Camp Pembroke offers a 2-week mini-session. The camp directors offer tours all year and are always happy to speak with prospective families.
