We welcome everyone into the Camp Ruach family! 

Spirit in Hebrew, is what we aim to bring to camp each day
There are a few special camp elements which showcase Jewish life and are rooted in culture, language, community and values.
The Jewish programming we bring to camp are at its core human values and something to which all can connect.

Mitzvah Matt

We are excited to welcome back Mitzvah Matt this summer who runs community service based programming weekly with each camp group. His activities remind us of the importance to take care of each other, our community, and our world. He is also famous for Thankful Thursdays when he helps to remind us for what we are thankful!

Jewish Value Tuesday 

Each week has a special Jewish value which connects to the week’s theme and is explored throughout camp. Such values include that of friendship, caring for the environment, community, and more!


Every Friday morning the camp gathers together for a camp wide Shabbat Celebration to culminate the end of a busy and exciting week. Shabbat, the Jewish Sabbath and day of rest, is celebrated through song, eating of Challah (braided egg bread), and exploration of tradition.
