Gilboa's Going Virtual!

For Camp Gilboa, living Jewishly means building a loving, inclusive, and creative community, practicing critical thinking, and working towards justice, equality, and collective responsibility. We educate and act on social, economic, racial and gender inequalities, and our unique participatory, youth-led model creates a lively, profound and empowering experience, where campers see the world as a place where they can and should make a difference. 

Gilboa's virtual summer includes a core program, marked blue on the schedule, with optional chuggim (electives) add-ons.
