Camp Neshama: From Art to Zipping and More

A great summer camp is created by the spirit of the place, the quality of the campers and staff, and great programming.

However, a really run-down camp can be a super drag.

Luckily, in choosing the David Oved Retreat Center for Camp Neshama, we did not have to comprise. The camp was completely renovated and rebuilt last year through hundreds of donors and supporters of Jewish camping.

Therefor, Camp Neshama is decked out with many more cool things than we had as kids. Seriously.

What kind of things will there be at Camp Neshama? Some of the great facilities include:

  • Olympic-size swimming pool
  • Basketball courts
  • Soccer fields
  • Volleyball courts
  • Handball courts
  • Gaga Court
  • Hockey court
  • Tennis courts
  • Art and ceramics barn
  • High & low elements ropes course
  • Organic farm
  • Archery
  • Climbing wall
  • Outdoor amphitheater
  • Campfire areas & outdoor fireplace
  • Hiking trails
  • Zip-Line
  • Ultimate Frisbee
  • Scenic lodge
  • Beit Midrash
  • Kosher Mikvah

And much more.
