Our Philosophy

Founded in 1954, Camp Kinneret is a loving community rooted in tradition.

Camp Kinneret Is…

  • A place where creativity and expression are encouraged
  • A program in which teamwork and social interaction are the basics
  • A community where the courage to try is celebrated and the desire to succeed is supported
  • An opportunity for children to grow through accomplishment and respect

Camp Kinneret is an experience that words cannot adequately describe. Our focus on relationships and providing children with opportunities to learn, grow and discover themselves is at the heart of the Camp Kinneret philosophy. Our attitude and approach to everything we do at camp focuses on creating a warm, welcoming environment in which kids can be themselves without fear of judgment and in which each child belongs. Our child centered philosophy creates a supportive atmosphere where campers develop skills and values to last a lifetime. We call it a child centered program, the campers call it the best summer ever!
