CBF Online Has Many Of The Same Magical Ingredients As Our Overnight Camp: Counselors, Cabin Groups, Fun Electives, Judaics, Evening Programs, Song Sessions, Special Guests, Shabbat, And More!

Daily Schedule

When you're laughing, socializing, and having fun, the screen disappears and time flies! Our schedule is filled with active fun and plenty of breaks. Campers and their families are also invited to join weekly evening programs and Shabbat. 

Cabin Groups

Just like at our overnight camp, campers join cabin groups with peers and  counselors. At camp, your cabin is a tight-knit family. Counselors facilitate activities, games, discussions, and challenges. Cabins are together at the beginning and ending of each day and also have the option to hang out each day during lunch. 

Fun Electives

At CBF, we're dedicated to providing opportunities for campers and teens to choose from a rich variety of activities that are fun, exciting, and enriching. Campers can select from dozens of options each week. See below for a full list of electives. 

High Impact

Social connections that are meaningful and enriching are incredibly important for children. In post-camp surveys from our 2020 online summer camp, campers and parents overwhelmingly reported that they felt welcomed, had fun, and felt connected to a community.


Jewish activities include weekly Shabbat services for the whole family. Jewish themes and values are woven into daily activities as part of the fabric of Camp Ben Frankel’s culture. We're often joined by guest rabbis, cantors, and Jewish educators.  

Incredible Counselors

We believe that the camp counselors are the most important ingredients to ensure that campers have a great experience. Our counselors earn high ratings from campers and parents and undergo industry-leading screening and training. We look for counselors who are genuinely passionate about working with kids and meet or exceed our high standards.

Watch our series about the making of Camp Ben Frankel online!



We weren't sure if an online camp would work for our son and if he would be able to make new friends in the virtual space. It turned out that we had no need to be concerned. Camp Ben Frankel was such an incredible experience for our son! He was laughing, playing, and learning with kids and counselors all day long and couldn't wait to see them again at the evening programs. He had the chance to connect with so many people and to feel connected to a warm, supportive community. I can't recommend this camp enough!


I enjoyed meeting lots of new people. Everyone was super welcoming, even though I joined camp later than most people. I also loved all of the chugs because there were so many that I loved and the counselors were incredible!!!


We've been really impressed with all of the programming and the amazing staff. Somehow the day goes by fast and you've made being "online" fun, entertaining, personable, and interactive.
