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.

My children seem to bloom in the summer. The time at Kinneret encourages their growth and development.- Camp Kinneret Parent
The buses are wonderful and getting to interact with some of the counselors every morning was great. Hearing all his stories and listening to all his crazy songs made me feel like a kid again...- Camp Kinneret Parent
As a first-year CIT last summer, our daughter has started to see the value in looking for and being a role model to others. She adores her counselor, who, we are told, greets campers with a sweet and caring "Hi, my friend!" Only an 8th grader, our daughter has already begun to consider her own catch phrase so that she, too, can inspire campers.- Naomi A., Camp Kinneret Parent
What I see now is the cumulative effect of what Camp Kinneret has done for my kids all of these years. We are so grateful they have had this opportunity. Camp Kinneret has given them these experiences that we haven't been able to as parents. They've had what we had as kids, but better, with this group of amazing people.- Camp Kinneret Parent
The bus is awesome–a perfect mix of safety and supervision with summer silliness and fun.- Stephanie W., Camp Kinneret Parent
