At CBF, we create an inclusive, welcoming community for Jewish children from all Jewish backgrounds. Our vision is: "for every Jewish child, a place to belong."
Online Counselors, Cabins, Electives, Judaics, Evening Programs, Song Sessions, Special Guests, Shabbat, Havdalah, And More!
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, Shabbat, and Havdalah.
Just like at our traditional camp, campers join cabins in age-appropriate groups with dedicated counselors to facilitate activities, games, discussions, and challenges. Cabins hang out at the beginning and ending of each day and also have the option to socialize each day during lunch.
We’re excited about the amazing opportunity presented by being online -- incredible special guests! We’re joined each week by an array of special guests from the worlds of entertainment, professional sports, news media, music, art, and much, much more!
Interactive Virtual Tours
With the power of the internet, CBF Online campers can experience interactive tours across the globe! From the States to Europe, Israel, and more -- campers can help control the action and the experience.
Jewish activities include weekly Shabbat and Havdalah programs -- the whole family is invited! Jewish themes are woven into daily activities as part of the fabric of Camp Ben Frankel’s culture.
Each week includes two evening programs such as talent shows or interactive game nights, special guests, and more. Families are invited to join! We’ll close with an online version of one of Camp Ben Frankel’s most beautiful traditions: Friendship Circle.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Camp is the best thing in existence, except for maybe life. It outweighs camp, but not by much.
It was super fun! One of my favorite things was
drawing with “Button”. She taught us different ways for us to draw and write our name. Not only did we just hang out and have fun but we also got to learn. I’m definitely going to CBF online this summer!
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.
