About
Camp Ben Frankel Online was initially developed in 2020 to deliver on our mission and provide a fun, inclusive community for our campers and staff. It surpassed all expectations and even received national and international acclaim and continues to offer a means for children to experience joy and happiness together no matter where they live.

Online Winter Camp Is Back!

Our online camp will be back in December with two sessions filled with the same fun, creativity, and community that CBF Online launched in 2020. Winter camp is a great way for returning campers to stay closely connected with their friends and for new campers to get to know the camp community before attending our overnight camp in the summer. 

  • Session 1: Dec 20-23

  • Session 2: Dec 27-30

  • 10a-3:30p ct daily

  • $189/session or $369 for both sessions (prices valid through the end of Nov)

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. 

Fun 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.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

PARENT SURVEY RESPONSE

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. I can't recommend this camp enough!

CAMPER SURVEY RESPONSE

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!!!

JONI

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.
