There are two camp sessions to choose from. Session One is 5 weeks long and Session Two is 4 weeks long. 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 is 1st class all the way! Top notch counselors and staff. Every detail is well planned and thought out with kids (and parents) in mind. The Sleepout is an incredible experience of growth and independence, even at 5 and 6 years old. Camp Kinneret philosophy and warmth is what keeps us coming back year after year.- Sharon B., Camp Kinneret Parent
Our family cannot say enough good things about Camp Kinneret! Both of my boys go there and have been since they were 5 (they are now 9 and 7) and count down the minutes until summer is here and they can board their favorite yellow buses! The staff is absolutely amazing … everyone from the [...]- Felicia G., Camp Kinneret Parent (via yelp!)
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!)
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
After trying several other local camps over the last few summers and having mediocre experiences at best, my 7 year old son was hesitant to try Camp Kinneret. But from the very first day, he loved it and could not wait to go back that week. The counselors made him feel so comfortable from the very first moment he arrived at the camp. He made great friends, and had the most amazing summer, filled with activities that he loved and memories that will last a lifetime. He literally begged me to let him go back to Kinneret again next year!- Renee N., Camp Kinneret Parent
