Camp Alonim, founded by Dr. Shlomo Bardin, was designed to impact young people by engaging them in Judaism through their senses - through art, music, Israeli folk dance and drama. Today, the foundations of the camp programs have been expanded to reflect the modern vibrancy of Jewish life, which is experienced every day through music, Israeli dance, sports, arts and crafts, nature, cooking, and social action. Housed on the 2700+ acre Brandeis Bardin campus in the hills of Simi Valley, Camp Alonim has truly become a place where children thrive and Judaism comes alive. The natural surroundings of the beautiful campus inspires each camper to connect with the beauty of nature while making lifelong friendships. Campers ages 8-16 are invited to engage in a variety of camp programs, including Overnight Camp, Gan Alonim Day Camp, Fall/Winter/ Spring Camp and beloved Shabbats are held year-round. Camp Alonim strives to spark a lifelong love for Jewish culture, tradition, and community in its campers by exposing them to a multitude of ways to be Jewish. Every activity is a gateway - a means by which children engage with being Jewish.
