Summer Camp is Fantastic!
July 7, 2010
(Your BFJCS website writer/editor Rob Goldsmith spent three days at Camp Henry S. Jacobs over the 4th of July, 2010 weekend, visiting his wife Rabbi Lynne Goldsmith as she was serving on the Camp faculty. Rob was also visiting four campers from Dothan’s Temple Emanu-El Congregation. It’s a fantastic facility and a very special place where 240 campers can play, pray, grow, and enjoy.)
Henry S. Jacobs Camp is the Reform Jewish Movement’s summer camp serving the Deep South: Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Western Tennessee and the Florida Panhandle.
Since 1970, Jacobs Camp has been providing a caring Jewish community that builds young people. The camp program has a profound impact on our campers. The opportunity to live as part of a close-knit community and develop new skills, assisted by a dynamic and enthusiastic staff, coupled with Jewish values and the development of one’s Jewish identity result in the experience of a lifetime !
