Camp Gilgal WWW provides an opportunity for our campers to get together between summer camps, and our prospective campers to “test drive” Camp Gilgal. The weekends start with a Shabbat dinner on Friday evening and end with lunch on Sunday. In between is some major fun and spiritual encouragement. Because California is huge, we have two weekend camps: one in Southern California (Mile High Pines in Angelus Oaks) and one in Northern California (Dream Mountain Christian Camp in Murphys).

Rock climbing in the Gunks of Upstate New York

Adventure camp is the best week of the year for high school students! This year we're headed back to the 'Gunks'… the Shawangunk Ridge of Upstate New York, that is! We'll be spending a week camping, hiking and rock climbing our way around this beautiful and world-class climbing region. Adventure camp is an amazing time to be challenged physically, eat great food, hang out with other young Jewish believers in God's creation away from some of the comforts of home, and grow as followers of Yeshua. Join us for a week that you're sure to never forget!
