Part of Northern California’s largest network of Jewish day camps.  Known for creative programs, exciting activities and trips, lots of spirit, and love for the outdoors at the beautiful playground of Oakland Hebrew Day School.
Camp’s success lies in lively and enthusiastic counselors who serve as role models, offering the children lasting friendship. Campers are imbued with pride in their heritage and a love for the land of Israel.
Campers experience the excitement of Shabbat parties, challah baking, spirited singing and the Grand Shabbaton. Overnights to American River and Santa Cruz Boardwalk.
