Embracing Jewish traditions and values since 1948, Golden Slipper Camp, a not-for-profit overnight camp located in the Pocono Mountains, enriches the lives of children ages 7-15 and young adults from varied backgrounds by providing five essential components:

  • Scholarships for deserving campers in need
  • American Camp Association (ACA) accredited programming that reflects the Jewish community’s commitment to inspiring youth
  • Diverse activities that promote teamwork, tolerance and personal growth
  • Modern facilities that enhance safety, security and comfort
  • A family-oriented environment that fosters lifelong friendships and builds self esteem

For over 60 years, thousands of children have experienced firsthand the warmth, traditions, spirit and exhilarating fun that make Golden Slipper Camp an ideal choice for the summer.

For a community service project, volunteers can collect items to donate to the camp such as: guitars, musical keyboards, drum sticks, basketballs, soccer balls, volleyballs, tennis equipment, hockey sticks and balls to name a few. Also, volunteers can creatively come up with a way to help raise money to send children to camp (see the Mitzvah Bowl website’s “more ideas page” for mitzvah projects).

Children deserve to have an enriching, magical experience at summer camp, and for many children, their days at Golden Slipper Camp are some of the most enjoyable days of their years.
