Jewish camping is one of the three pillars.
Along with day school education and Israel travel, camp strengthens and reinforces Jewish identity. In a move to heighten the importance of Jewish camping in the Baltimore community, The Associated launched the Center for Jewish Camping in July 2013. The Center is the focalpoint of Jewish camp advocacy and activity in the Baltimore Jewish community.
Center for Jewish Camping Mission Statement
Through community outreach education and public awareness, the Center for Jewish Camping engages and inspires the Greater Baltimore Jewish community, in order to maximize the number of children attending Jewish camp, and ensuring a vibrant Jewish future.
