What We Do—

Camp Ideal

June 17-July 5, 2024

Want your child to have a safe and empowering camp experience? Camp Ideal is the perfect choice!

For over 60 years, we have created a welcoming camp environment rooted in Jewish community values, where campers participate in exciting workshops and activities that foster creativity and leadership.

In addition, our campers enjoy spending time outdoors on the campus of the Jewish Federation in South Bend, lake days at Fuller's Resort in Buchanan, exciting field trips, hands-on art activities, team-building exercises, and our grand finale, the Maccabiah Games -- our unique spin on the summer Olympics!

Camp Ideal is committed to providing a fun, safe, enjoyable, and enriching summer experience that allows campers to explore Jewish identity alongside children from diverse cultural backgrounds. Don't miss the opportunity to join us at Camp Ideal this Summer!
