Cejwin Camp was founded in 1918 to provide a summer in nature and fresh air for New York City’s Jewish children. Its location in rural New York, just 90 minutes from Manhattan, allowed Cejwin to thrive and open seven camps to serve around 1000 kids. Recenly parents don’t feel it is as important for children to connect with the natural world. That along with what people choose to do with their summers caused Cejwin to close its doors in the 1990’s. After Cejwin, a Christian group took over and established a camp there for a few years.
