CAMP GESHEЯ is the only overnight camp on the West Coast designed especially for campers from Russian-speaking Jewish families. This summer CAMP GESHEЯ joins the Camp JCA Shalom and Shalom Institute family with over 65 years of excellence in Jewish camping. 


Children entering 3rd-8th grades (up to age 14) from Russian-speaking Jewish families
And teens entering 9th-10th grades can now in our LIT (Leadership-in-Training) program!

It's finally here!!! The LIT program at Camp GesheЯ is a Leadership In Training program designed for our new and returning campers entering 9th and 10th grades. The program provides Russian Jewish teens with the skills they need to take a leadership role in all areas of life, in team work and camp life. Together we will learn to embrace and overcome challenges, to develop innovative solutions, and to lead and contribute to the community of camp, and beyond.  This is an excellent “pre-job” experience for any teen! In the future, alumni of LIT will learn to become a counselor for our camp.
