Two outstanding Jewish summer camps

TheZone’s two exceptional Jewish sleepaway camps are comprised of separate, fully-equipped campuses for the Boys and Girls Divisions. Conveniently located in close proximity in the upper Catskill region of New York, our camps run through the summer and attract staff and campers from around the world. Funded by Kars4Kids, TheZone maintains the latest state of the art facilities to enhance their campers’ summers.

There’s horseback riding and cow milking for the animal lovers and a music studio and talent show for the aspiring performer. So whether you’re an athlete or an art enthusiast, there’s something for everyone at TheZone’s Jewish sleepaway camp.
