Grow up with us at Camp Laurelwood!
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!
Laurelwood Day Camp is run by Camp Laurelwood and is a great way for campers to start their camping experience. Laurelwood Day Camp is offered to children entering grades K through Grade 7.

The 2020 Bonim Teen & Travel Camp is a recreational, educational and cultural experience, building character and social skills along with a strong Jewish identity.
