Inspiring a Love of Judaism,
365 Days a Year

At URJ Camp Newman, we’re building a foundation for a vibrant and joyful Jewish life. Rooted in Jewish values and guided by our experienced staff, we offer fun, immersive summer sessions that give your child the opportunity to develop community, teamwork, self-esteem, and individual skill. Activities include athletics, outdoor adventure, music, art, dance, leadership training, and social action. Campers celebrate their best selves, form lifelong friendships, and find a community where they belong.

There are so many amazing things to do: Seeing the final point scored in Ultimate Frisbee. Dancing together on Shabbat. Making s’mores along the waterfront. Singing arm-in-arm every night before bed. Scoring in Beach Volleyball. Fishing in the San Francisco Bay. Swimming in the Olympic-sized pool. Hiking to the Star and playing Frisbee at our Porter Creek home. Making more friends in a week than they could all year.

We believe that these transformative experiences inspire kids to bring camp home to their daily lives, applying what they learn here to better themselves, their communities and the world. We can’t wait to spend the summer with you!

Sessions

Camp Newman offers 25 traditional and specialty summer sessions from one to eight weeks.

Location

The summer home of Camp Newman is at the beautiful bay-side campus of Cal Maritime in Vallejo, CA – with high caliber adventure programming at their Porter Creek home in Santa Rosa, CA.

Values

Our camp programs are rooted in the Jewish principles of:
• Tikkun Olam – bettering our world
• Tikkun Middot – bettering ourselves
• Gmilut Chasadim – acts of loving kindness
• Betzelem Elohim – all humans are created in a divine image
• Talmud Torah – love of learning for learning’s sake
• Ahavat Israel – love of Israel
These timeless, universal values form the backbone of every program we plan, anchoring each event in our Jewish tradition. It’s just one way we make Judaism relevant, accessible and meaningful today.
