Camp Centerland has a rich tradition dating back to 1955. We feel it is important for each child to experience the joys of summer camping. If you choose to send your child(ren) to Camp Centerland, they will step out of the ordinary and into the extraordinary!
Please take the time to read what Centerland has to offer your family. With an amazing facility, a caring staff, and top of the line programming, we feel your child will walk away from camp with a strong sense of self, community, Jewish values, and friendship.
A typical day at Camp Centerland is filled with fun and friendship. Your child will participate in many outdoor activities, including Teva (Nature), Shirah (Music), Amanut (Arts & Crafts), Sports, Swimming, Ropes Course, Chugim (Hobby Groups), Archery, and much more!
If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact us at any time.
