What Parents and Campers Say About Camp Urban Adamah

“Urban Adamah gave my children an experience they will never forget. They grew vegetables, made mud bricks and explored ecology, but more than that, they spent a week in the company of thoughtful, genuine counselors who made each child feel welcome and part of the community.”

—Liz Scarboro, mom of campers Theo & Tess

 

“My daughter was completely engaged and in the moment at Urban Adamah. Her eyes were bright and she couldn’t stop singing and dancing from the moment we picked her up until bed. She has been inspired and it is evident in every part of her. Thank you Urban Adamah for bringing her into the community!”

—Rachel Palac, mom of camper Kendall

 

“Camp Urban Adamah was the highlight of my daughter’s summer.  We have experimented with many different camps over the past years and Urban Adamah has been the best.  My daughter, who is usually shy in new groups, felt at home right away.  The counselors were patient and loving, the curriculum was exciting and child centered. The farm itself was amazing. I can’t wait to sign up again this year.”

—Melita Silberstein, mom of camper Leilah

 

“Urban Adamah was a perfect combination of Jewish tradition, hands-on farm work, play and community building. Their staff are amazing. My son can’t wait to go back. Thank you!”

—Anna Fogelman, mom of camper Eli

 

“Urban Adamah was better than great for so many reasons, especially because the snack was super duper good every day—it was so cool to be able to help pick the vegetables and make the pizza!”

—Eli, 6-year-old camper

 

“Camp was a terrific experience for my daughter. She came home each day excited, dirty and full of stories about her day of adventure on the farm. To think that this is also an experience that connected her to positive and relevant aspects of Jewish tradition. Amazing! Thank you Camp Urban Adamah. We’ll be coming back for years!”

—Yael Galinson, mom of camper Gaby

 

“It was really fun! My favorite part was planting. And I also liked that you do a lot of nice stuff like write in a journal about a special plant that you really like. And they have really nice counselors.”

—Gaby, 6-year-old camper

 

“From summer camps cosponsored with area synagogues to religious school programs that teach earth-based Judaism; from festivals that celebrate the harvest to partnerships with community organizations working for food justice: Urban Adamah is making an incredible impact on our East Bay Jewish community. Adam, his staff, and the UA fellows are spreading Torah through our community and teaching us about the wonders of a long over-looked sacred Jewish place…the farm.”

—Rabbi Jim Brandt, CEO Jewish Federation of the Greater East Bay
