What makes us different

You lead a healthy, active lifestyle at home. Shouldn’t your kids do the same at camp? We think so!

Camp Zeke is the first and only overnight camp where kids celebrate healthy, active living through fitness, cooking, sports, gourmet food, and joyful Judaism.

Our youngest campers travel with their bunks while our older campers create their day based on their interests. So whether a camper wants to run faster, get stronger, zen out in yoga, play sports or cook impressive dishes, they can create their perfect day.

Let’s eat!

At Café Zeke,  we threw traditional notions of “camp food” out the window! We believe that delicious meals start with locally-sourced ingredients. In fact, with the help of our campers and counselors, we grow some of our herbs and spices right on Zeke’s campus and source many other ingredients from local farms and markets. Those are also the ingredients campers use in our culinary arts program!
