Our Philosophy

An Extraordinary Place

Founded in 1954, Camp Kinneret is a loving community rooted in tradition. Camp Kinneret changes lives and is…

  • a place where creativity and expression are encouraged
  • a program in which teamwork and social interaction are the basics
  • a community where the courage to try is celebrated and the desire to succeed is supported
  • an opportunity for children to grow through accomplishment and respect

Camp Kinneret is an experience that words cannot adequately describe. Our focus on relationships and providing children with opportunities to learn, grow and discover themselves is at the heart of the Camp Kinneret philosophy.  Our attitude and approach to everything we do at camp focuses on creating a warm, welcoming environment in which kids can be themselves without fear of judgment and in which each child belongs.  Our child centered philosophy creates a supportive atmosphere where campers develop skills and values to last a lifetime. We call it a child centered program, the campers call it the best summer ever!

Camp Kinneret has provided wonderful experiences for my children for many, many years. The site and activities are fun, but it's the quality of the counselors that make the experience what it is each summer. The traditional "feel" and camp songs are wholesome, just like when us parents were kids. I can't recommend highly enough.

Camp Kinneret is a safe and warm environment for a child to explore new activities and friendships.  The administration has a very high standard for safety and their staffing and the kids have a blast and learn how to be a more spirited version of themselves.  It's a joy to watch them light up inside -- and they don't even notice how filthy they are at the end of a good, hard day at camp!

What Parents & Campers Are Saying

The bus ride was the best part according to my kids!! They LOVED learning and singing the songs (which they still are singing). The counselors were always punctual, as was the bus, and friendly both in the morning and in the afternoon after a long, hot day. The counselors were always very attentive to both […]

Thanks so much! I must tell you, I am so thrilled with the camp experience my kids are getting. Our house and car are now filled with camp songs, and when they came home with their “Olympic Medals” yesterday, it was as if they had medaled in the more widely known Olympics!! Such a difference […]

Camp Kinneret was such a wonderful experience for our Son. We actually decided to send him to a different camp initially. While we waited at the bus stop the Camp Kinneret bus came around the corner vibrating with cheer/songs from the kids and counselors. We sent our son on a different bus that didn’t have […]
