MISSION: To engage tomorrows Jewish leaders to be strongly affiliated, proud Jews; to challenge todays Jewish youth to discover their hidden talents and develop them in the service of others, and to create everlasting friendships and community.

JEWISH VISION: Nageela was created with the core belief that a Jewish residential camp has amazing transformative values. Our approach to Judaism is based on a living Jewish model. Campers are exposed to traditional Judaism each day during the camp program, Tefilah Huddle, Kesher and Shema Circle during the week and a full gamut of meaningful Judaic activities and programs on Shabbat.

In Nageela, campers are infused with a joyful attitude towards Judaism. Our Leadership and Cabin Staff are chosen to serve as Jewish role models.

We seek to utilize classic residential camp moments and transform them to serve a dual purpose; to provide meaningful Judaic education/inspiration, and to act as platforms for individualistic growth and development.

GOAL: To provide a residential Jewish camping experience in a safe and fun environment.
