Camp Solomon Schechter has a 60-year tradition of fun, friendship, and Jewish education in the Pacific Northwest. At Schechter we value each child as an individual and strive to support their social and spiritual growth. Campers have the opportunity to be independent in a safe and nurturing environment. We encourage every camper to try something new, make new friends, make good choices, and grow as a leader and as an individual. We offer a unique, welcoming, and spiritual Jewish environment based upon the ideals of the Conservative movement. At Schechter, campers engage with and understand Jewish spirituality and religion in a way they never have before. At Camp Solomon Schechter, Judaism and Joy are truly one!
Jewish camp can be one of the most rewarding and influential experiences a child has. A summer at Camp Solomon Schechter raises self-confidence, builds decision-making skills, improves social skills, and enables children to reach inside themselves and discover talents and abilities they never knew they had. These benefits last a lifetime - in fact, Jewish camping has been identified as one of the most important influences a child can have in building Jewish identity and commitment (see the " Camp Works" study (2011) from the Foundation for Jewish Camp). At Camp Solomon Schechter we emphasize the values of integrity, derech eretz (respect), and tikkun olam (repairing the world). We do this through activities and teva (nature) to create our ideal Jewish community.
