Living Jewishly at CBF
CBF is a pluralist Jewish community. That means we provide opportunities for each camper, from any Jewish background, to create meaningful Jewish experiences to ensure they feel positively connected with Judaism, tikkun olam, and Israel.
We celebrate Shabbat, have a kosher kitchen, and partner with the Foundation for Jewish Camp and MASA Israel to infuse our activities with the latest best practices in Jewish informal education. Example Jewish activities include art in prayer, tikkun olam, Hebrew (basic, intermediate, conversational), Jewish values in nature, Israeli culture, history of Israel, bar/bat mitzvah tutoring, Jewish identity discussion, Jewish storytelling, torah/haftorah reading, Sedra scenes (skits based upon the torah portion), Mussar, and more.
