Keshet LGBTQ Family Camp Weekend

Join Keshet: August 24 – 27, 2017


Founded at Camp Tawonga in 1997 by former Director Deborah Newbrun, Keshet LGBTQ Family Camp was the first of its kind in the Jewish camping world. Since then, the program has grown and evolved into an important family tradition, memorable experience and beautiful community. Join us in 2017 as we celebrate Keshet’s 20th anniversary!

“Keshet” means rainbow in Hebrew, and this innovative program draws a true rainbow of participants from all over the country. Participants enjoy this unique weekend that features all the fun and excitement of summer camp squeezed into four memorable days on Tawonga’s beautiful property alongside the Tuolumne River, nestled in the mountains near Yosemite National Park. This is a weekend you don’t want to miss!
