JRF Director of Youth and Camping: Rabbi Jeffrey Eisenstat

Camp JRF fills your summer with fun, friendships, and Jewish living. Our summer camp is a joyful, creative, and inclusive Reconstructionist community. Campers swim, play soccer, basketball, baseball, volleyball, and other sports. They sing and explore other arts. They learn from visiting artists, scholars, and rabbis, as well from talented specialists and dedicated college-age counselors. Our campers make lasting friendships, experience a safe and fun summer, explore Jewish tradition, forge their own Jewish identity, and participate in creating a Jewish culture in which our values are lived each day.

Reconstructionism is a progressive approach to Jewish life which integrates a deep respect for traditional Judaism with the insights of today. At Camp JRF, we not only teach Jewish living skills, but we also create a warm and caring community, where campers can build character and learn a deep respect for Jewish tradition and what it has to offer in everyday life.

Located in the Pocono Mountains, the site is on 130 acres of beautifully wooded land in South Sterling, Pennsylvania, and includes a waterfront with canoes and kayaks; a low and high ropes course and climbing wall; a heated swimming pool; endless hiking trails; a baseball diamond, tennis courts, sand volleyball courts, basketball courts, and athletic fields; a state-of-the art theatre; an arts & crafts center; an indoor athletic facility and a complete health center.
