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.

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
Our sons have been at Camp Kinneret since they were 8 and 6. We tried to save a little money and sent them to the local camp. The complaining was endless so we decided last summer to send them back to Kinneret. The counselors are outstanding and the camp is safe, organized and fun, fun, [...]- Karen K., Camp Kinneret Parent (via yelp!)
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
Camp shows me that there are things inside me I didn’t know were there.- Sarah, Camp Kinneret Camper, Age 8
My daughter has spent the last 8 summers at Camp Kinneret. She always has a blast and I know she is safe and being watched by fabulous, caring leaders!- Stacy M., Camp Kinneret Parent
