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.

The quality of the program and staff is the main reason [we return]. Counselors are well trained and able to handle any situation. Their attitude is always positive. The activities are very appropriate and traditional. The office staff is always helpful and reassuring. It is a very safe and happy environment.- Julie R., Camp Kinneret Parent
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
Year after year, Camp Kinneret consistently offers a wonderful, safe and fun experience for my children.
