Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To provides extraordinary experiences through an outstanding overnight summer camp program and ongoing year-round programs. To create fun, safe and inclusive spaces that builds intentional communities and offers exceptional leadership development.
To inspire creative and responsible Jewish youth leaders who practice social justice (tzedakah) and social responsibility (tikun olum), develop and maintain a close connection to modern Israel and contribute to a vibrant American Jewish community.

We accomplish our goals through an immersive summer camp environment that has an intentional and thoughtful educational program. This program is supported by the year-round activities that reinforce the lessons learned and attitudes acquired at camp. We provide leadership opportunities from a very young age so that participants are able to practice and experience what it takes to achieve their goals.

We have a phenomenal facility in Bucks County, PA, that's capable of hosting up to 180 campers and 60 staff each summer. In addition, we are affiliated with Habonim Dror and HaNoar HaOved, two of the premier youth leadership movements in the world.

We are fairly consistent in our progress. However, we could certainly grow the camp, increase our retention, and magnify our effect.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Oct 01 - Sep 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
