Foundation for Jewish Camp is partnering with OneTable to help you bring your passion for Jewish camp to your table.

Camp Alumni Shabbat

Remember those sweet summer nights, celebrating Shabbat at camp? Bring that spirit to others at your own table!

Foundation for Jewish Camp has teamed up with OneTable and a handful of camps to help you share your love of
camp, traditions, and community with friends and other camp alumni. We’ll support you to provide all the essentials, from food to ritual items and other resources for up to 10 people. (And if you’ve got more than 10 guests, that’s ok too!)

Consider having s’mores for dessert or asking you camp for the recipe to your favorite camp meal (grilled cheese, anyone?), maybe sing some songs and decorate like a campfire, or incorporate your favorite camp traditions into the meal. Not sure where to start planning? OneTable’s Shabbat Coaches can help you plan your personalized ideal camp Shabbat dinner!

Step One

Connect with your camp’s professional staff and let them know you want to host a dinner!
