Jewish Summer Camp at Har HaShem


Entering its 9th season, Keitanat Har HaShem is Congregation Har HaShem’s 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 fun, music and more while offering Jewish education as well as a Jewish cultural and social experience to children.

Six one-week sessions run June 3rd to July 12th and end with an all-camp overnight July 13-14th.

Activities include swimming and water play, sports and games including a Ga-ga pit, storytelling, music, art, and fabulous field trips. Last year, the kids toured the Colorado Rockies dugout, visited the Botanical Gardens, and had a blast playing outside at Boondocks and indoors with glow-in-the dark miniature golf.

Each day begins with prayer and songs, and every week includes time with the clergy, challah baking, and a meaningful mitzvah project. Kids also love that Leah and Caroline are joined by many fabulous Har HaShem teens working (and mostly playing) as madrichim (counselors)!

This year, the great all-camp overnight will be held on a Saturday night, so parents can schedule the time for themselves.

Campers become playmates for summer and friends for life!

In 1966, a small group of committed Jewish families in Boulder had the vision and dedication to create Congregation Har HaShem. Nestled in the majestic foothills of the Rocky Mountains, Har HaShem is affiliated with the Union for Reform Judaism and is an inclusive congregation celebrating Jewish ideals and traditions while committed to the ongoing work of tikkun olam, repairing the world.
