Welcome! We are honored that you are considering Camp Wise for your child’s summer home away from home. Please take a look around our website, read our blog or give us a call and let us show you why our community lovingly calls Camp Wise, the “home of happiness.”
When you choose to send your child to Camp Wise you’ll be giving them a gift that will stay with them forever. Since 1907, Camp Wise has helped campers build confidence, independence and self-esteem while becoming part of a welcoming and inclusive Jewish environment. At camp, they will discover what it means to be Jewish on their own terms. They will make lifelong friends. They will immerse in nature and develop a comfort with being outdoors and a values-based concern for our environment. We’ll encourage them to try new activities and give them the skills they need to navigate social connections and teamwork. They’ll learn how to face challenges and overcome them in a safe and supportive space. We’ll model for them what it means to be a proud, engaged Jew and they’ll learn how to be a true mensch.
We look forward to being in touch, showing you around our beautiful campsite and welcoming you to Camp Wise this summer.

Director of Mandel JCC’s Camp Wise
