Here, vibrant Jewish communal life will enhance art, which in turn enhances Jewish life and identity. Located on the University of Redlands campus in southern California, campers will learn from working artists who are also comfortable teaching to a variety of levels, providing a truly youth-centered experience. Campers choose from one of our four core art studios (Visual Art, Music, Dance/Movement, and Theater) during each of our two-week sessions. Electives will allow young artists to continue working in their core studio or to explore another discipline. With access to various studios and outdoor spaces, campers and staff have all the tools and inspiration possible right at their fingertips. Whether they go deeply into their chosen art form or they try something for the first time, campers will grow as intentional artists and amazing human beings.
