Camp Nehirim for Men

at Easton Mountain

Greenwich, NY
More Info / Registration

It’s the gayest Jewish summer camp ever!  Now in its second year, the Nehirim Summer Camp is five days of swimming, hiking, volleyball, river tubing, campfires, hot tubbing, cookouts, delicious food, inspiring workshops, and that special Nehirim ruach (spirit) of community and spirituality. Imagine the best of Jewish summer camp… but everyone’s gay!

Register starting in May 2012.

The summer camp program takes place at the Eastoneaston2 Mountain Retreat Center in upstate New York. Easton has a swimming pool, miles of hiking trails, sauna, hot tub, a gorgeous lakeside setting, and hotel-style accommodations. (Sure, it’s summer camp, but we’re not going to stay in bunks!)  Camp Nehirim is a little “lighter” than the average Nehirim retreat — we’ll still be building warm & supportive community with one another, but we’ll have fewer workshops and more time outside, a little less organized spiritual practice and a little more sports, swimming, and free time. Last year’s schedule is below for reference.

The program runs from Wednesday afternoon through Sunday afternoon, with an optional trip in the Saratoga Springs area on Sunday afternoon after camp concludes. There is also the option to come only for Friday through Sunday for $100 less.
