New England’s three Cohen Camps cultivate friendships and Jewish values. Each shines with its own personality. Near Cape Cod, Camp Pembroke is a unique sisterhood for girls. On lakes in southern New Hampshire, Camps Tevya and Tel Noar are co-ed.

“Our camps cultivate confidence, belonging and resilience. The atmosphere is carefree and unplugged—and fun! Parents say this strengthens their children all year, at home and at school,” says President Jonathan Cohen, whose grandparents founded the camps.

Campers ages 7-16 can enroll for 3.5 or seven weeks. Younger first-timers can try Tel Noar or Pembroke for two weeks. First-timer and sibling discounts are available, as are scholarships.

“Our camps build an enduring touchstone for Jewish identity and community—which holds more significance for families than ever,” he says. “Parents choose Cohen Camps to get the warmth of a family-run nonprofit organization along with our 90-year legacy.” The non-denominational and Kosher camps welcome families across the Jewish spectrum.

At all three camps, children and teens live the magic of summer: friendships, outdoor living, arts, swimming and sports. “Campers enjoy lakes featuring beaches, canoes, kayaks and sailboats, athletic fields, tennis courts and a gaga pit. Each camp has photography, videography and creative arts. “Our balanced program offers more and more electives as you age,” Cohen says. “With lots of special events, there’s no ‘ordinary’ day at camp.”

Much of the staff grew up at camp and are committed to giving the next generation of campers great summers. “Our staff is the heart of what we offer,” Cohen says. “Parents tell us their children and teens think of camp as their ‘happy place.’”
