2018 Camp Urban Adamah Staff

Application Deadline: April 23, 2018
Start Date: Summer, 2018

At Camp Urban Adamah, we offer campers a taste of organic farm life through fun and dynamic hands-on programs at our urban farm. Our programs are designed to create a space for children to thrive and express their natural curiosities and passions, all within a vibrant, loving and inclusive Jewish community. This summer, Camp Urban Adamah is offering ten weeks of programming for children entering preK to fifth grade that feature hands-on projects and activities exploring themes that integrate nature-connection, farm-to-food-making, crafts, sustainability, and community-building.

We rely on an experienced and talented group of staff to create loving, inspiring, memorable, and transformative experiences for children. Our counselors ensure that children of different ages can have wonderful experiences both as part of a large group, and in smaller age-based groups.
