There are two camp sessions to choose from. Session One is 5 weeks long and typically runs from mid-June to mid-July; exact dates TBD. Session Two is 4 weeks long and typically runs from mid-July to mid-August; exact dates TBD. 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.

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.- Jeff S., Camp Kinneret Parent (via yelp!)
The exceptional way that counselors and staff treat all children with respect and understanding. Also, the engaged involvement of group counselors and bus counselors helps parents feel safe to have children ride the bus, and especially to feel comfortable having kids at the beach, and other off-site spots. Positive behavior standards and conduct are not [...]- Camp Kinneret Parent
The bus is awesome–a perfect mix of safety and supervision with summer silliness and fun.- Stephanie W., Camp Kinneret Parent
When your kids come off the bus each day covered in dirt, disheveled and with the biggest smiles on their faces you know that that day was awesome. When they sing the camp songs at dinner and laugh uncontrollably at a memory that took place at Friendship Hill you know that Kinneret is the best [...]- Camp Kinneret Parent
In just a couple of weeks we already saw a change in our daughter. Her confidence and willingness to try new things improved, and she became more independent as a result. We were very happy with our Camp Kinneret experience!- Scott S., Camp Kinneret Parent
