Jewish Summer Camp for Kids

Your Child’s Jewish Camp Experience Starts Here!

Entering its 7th season, Keitanat Har HaShem is Boulder’s Jewish summer camp for kids entering 1st through 5th grades. Led by experienced educators and wildly fun directors Caroline Saliman and Leah Boonin, days are filled with ruach, fun, music, and more!

Never been to a Jewish day camp? Give it a try. Activities include swimming and water play, sports and games, storytelling, music and art, field trips, and Judaics. Each day begins with prayer and songs, and every week includes time with the rabbis, challah baking, and a mitzvah project.

My husband and I are both Jewish, but we are not affiliated with a temple at this point. We are thrilled that we found this program at Har HaShem as it gives our girls another Jewish perspective! They adore the summer camp. They get so much love and joy out of it, and Leah and Caroline are a dynamic and creative pair! The activities are so much fun – from visiting the ‘oldsters’ at the retirement home, to ice skating, swimming at the Rec. Center, singing songs, doing the camp sleepover, and making challah bread – it is action packed!” – Bobbi Bensman, parent

I love that my kids are getting a Jewish experience. The staff creates a schedule that is fun and full of activities including Jewish songs and Jewish values. Celebrating Shabbat as a part of summer camp is special. My kids are forming lasting relationships with other Jewish kids in the community which provides a sense of belonging as well as fun being around the synagogue.” Jen Goldman, parent

Leah and Caroline create a warm, loving environment where the kids have a ton of fun doing “campy” things. They learn about Judaism in an informal way and don’t even realize it.” Marcia Seigal, parent

We tried to get our kids to go to another camp to broaden their experiences, even for a week, but they refused! KHHS plans the schedule very well and it works. The kids love to play, and they do a lot of it!” Daniel and Marisa Hirsch, parents

Six one-week sessions run June 6th to July 14th ending with a great all-camp overnight. Try one week or attend up to all six weeks.  You don’t have to be a member of Har HaShem.

Online registration is fast and easy. The Early Bird Discount deadline is April 8th. Financial aid is available. For session dates, hours, costs, and more details, visit For more information, contact
