Laurelwood Main Programs:

Overnight Camp

Campers entering second through 10th grades live in newly updated bunks with their friends and counselors, and enjoy all of the programs and activities camp has to offer!

Campers can begin their Laurelwood journey as they enter Kindergarten by trying out our amazing day camp.

From there, each summer they will grow, make new friends, and experience new adventures.

At Camp Laurelwood, our campers grow into Staff-in-Training, then eventually can apply to be on staff.

Growing up at camp can mean making camp your summer home for many years!

What the Community Says

"When I’m at camp I’m so busy making friends, doing activities, singing on benches at shabbat, roasting marshmallows, and being a part of the countless other special things we do. When the 7 weeks are over and I have my first moment to reflect on the summer, I realize that all throughout each of those special days I was actually growing as a person and becoming a more genuine, thoughtful version of myself."

~Erin Bellucci

"After 9 summers at laurelwood I can say with confidence that it gets better every year. It's always such a wonderful mix of new and old faces and bonds that form and grow each summer. Laurelwood has shaped me into who I am today and I'm forever grateful for the experiences and environment it provided me growing up."

~Henry Brown

"Not a day goes by when I don’t think of camp; I am reminded of my home away from home when I hear “Unwritten” on the radio, whenever I wear a white blouse, and whenever I eat a blondie. It is the small traditions that make camp unique. Laurelwood has provided a safe haven for me to pursue my passions with the most supportive staff and campers."
