Inspiring a love of Judaism … through the adventure, friendships, an accepting community, and joy of summer camp!
At URJ Camp Newman, we’re building a foundation for a vibrant Jewish life. Guided by experienced staff and Jewish professionals, we offer 25 traditional and specialty overnight summer sessions from 1 to 8 weeks at the beautiful bay-side campus of Cal Maritime. Our camp empowers children and teens to better themselves, their communities and the world.
Everything we do at Camp Newman – from our Jewish programs, to on the sports fields, to hanging out with friends – is rooted in the Jewish principles of:
- Tikkun Olam – bettering our world
- Tikkun Middot – bettering ourselves
- Gimilute Chasadim – acts of loving kindness
- Betzelem Elohim – all humans are created in a divine image
- Talmud Torah – love of learning for learning’s sake
- Ahavat Israel – love of Israel
These timeless, universal values form the backbone of every program we plan, anchoring each event in our Jewish tradition. It’s just one way we make Judaism relevant, accessible and meaningful today.
