What is Encampment?  Encampment is an exciting, end of summer positive Jewish experience.  It provides Jewish teenagers entering grades 6-12 an informal opportunity to make new friends and renew friendships that they have made at previous activities.  At the same time, the participants will live in a completely Conservative Jewish setting.

Program:  Encampment does in one week what most camps do in 8 weeks!  Highlights of our program include:

· Talent Show
· Maccabiah
· Special Senior Programs
· Social Action Programs
· Drama
· Arts & Crafts
· Chapter Programming Workshops
· Creative Services
· Intramural Sports
· Pool activities-
· Israel Programs

Staff:  The staff is comprised of Rabbis, teachers, youth advisors, and a select group of young adults who make up our bunk counselors and specialty staff.  Many are former USYers who return to give back something of themselves to the organization.
What participants have said…..

“Encampment was the best 7 (or so) days since Genesis. “

“I loved camp soooo much! I miss my new friends and I can’t wait to go
back next summer!”

“This was my first encampment, and I
came in as a senior, and I had so
much fun and made so many friends.
Everyone was so willing to get to know me even though I was new, and I felt very comfortable!”
“It was awesome!! One of the best experiences of my life!”

“It was so much fun. I made friends that will last a lifetime.“

Facilities:  HaGalil’s Encampment takes place on the grounds of the well-known B’nai Brith Perlman Camp in the Poconos, located in Starlight, Pennsylvania. It is a certified Kosher camp.
