There are two camp sessions to choose from. Session One is 5 weeks long and runs from June 15 – July 17. Session Two is 4 weeks long and runs from July 20 – August 14. This session structure provides a unique opportunity for children. We believe that camp is so much more than just activities. Camp is about being supported and encouraged to try new things. Camp is about learning how to stick out your hand and meet a new friend. Camp is about being part of a group, developing a team spirit and having the chance to lead. All of this doesn’t happen in just a few days. Nor does it happen when there are new campers starting and stopping camp throughout the summer. Our 4 and 5 week sessions are an integral part of the quality experiences that we provide for children and the reason that so many Camp Kinneret campers return from one summer to the next.
Campers at Camp Kinneret attend 2 – 5 days per week. Our day combinations are chosen specifically to allow campers to participate in a well-rounded camp experience. Choose from the following day combinations:
Family vacations or school conflicts of one calendar week can be accommodated. You can choose to miss one week in each session by simply marking it on your application or notifying us before May 1st. We can pro-rate your fees accordingly.
Every year our camp enrollment begins in January. Our small group sizes mean that space is limited. We encourage families to make their summer plans early. We are in the office year-round- please call us at any time for more information regarding enrollment.

I was hesitant about sending my second grader to Camp Kinneret after a less than wonderful experience at a different camp the previous summer. But Kinneret was a big hit from day one. All I heard about were bull's eyes and how fast he could swim and the buddies he had made. It was a joy to put him on the bus each morning, knowing that he would have such a great day ahead of him.- Kim N., Camp Kinneret Parent
My children have spent their summers at Camp Kinneret since they were going into kindergarten. They have made friends, and built relationships with the counselors that are still close to our hearts. Going to camp feels like being at home for them. They absolutely love it.- Camp Kinneret Parent
From the second he woke up on camp days to the second he came home, he was singing Camp Kinneret songs. I've never seen my son happier. He was terribly sad to say goodbye to his counselors. He still talks about the Lemonade tower!! Most memorable summer ever!- Stacy F., Camp Kinneret Parent
My son gained so much from camp, it’s hard to put it into words. Camp increased his confidence, helped him feel competent participating in large and small groups and awakened a love of music and art that we are all still benefitting from. I was really surprised at how excited he got about art projects [...]- Camp Kinneret Parent
Camp Kinneret offers the kind of fun summer experience every kid should have, with counselors who make it truly memorable. Our kids love the activities, but it's really the energy and personality of the counselors that make the experience special. That and the bus!- David R., Camp Kinneret Parent
