    looking for a great jewish sleep away camp in the maryland area

    dont' know if anyone lives in maryland. i used to go to kaufmann camp for boys and girls on the chesapeake bay in maryland growing up and it has closed since i went.

    looking for a camp that is not too expensive and has 2 week sessions since it would be lara's first time away from home.

    My brother and I went to a great jewish sleep away camp in Maryland. The girls camp is called Camp Louise and it is in Cascade, Maryland (near Fredrick) They have two week sessions.

    If you have any questions let me know!

    I guess I never thought about how much they cost since my parents were paying (and it was quite a long time ago) I can only imagine how much it'll be when my little guy is old enough for camp!

    We both had great experiences there, however. Maybe they will work with you in terms or cost?

    Sometimes you can get camperships (scholarships) from your synagogue. Definitely worth checking into. Also, most camps have scholarships too. I am a big believer in Jewish camping. I think kids get an experience like none other when they go to Jewish camp. I'm also a huge fan of the Reform movement's camping system (ok, so I'm biased...). The link to their camps is:

    Most of them have two week sessions for the youngest campers.

    Can I go with Lara?

    I am sure she will love it! I have very fond memories of my years there.

    How old is your daughter?
