Our camp program is open to athletes entering grades 4 through 11. Each day, campers receive 3 to 4 hours of instruction in their selected sport major. Campers then choose two other sport electives for cross training, conditioning and fun. By blending sports with engaging and experiential Jewish camp activities that foster values of growth, sportsmanship, pride, leadership, intention and teamwork, 6 Points ensures that campers enjoy a well-rounded and truly unique summer experience.
In addition to sports, sports and more sports, camp activities will include: campfires, song sessions, inter camp athletic competition (Maccabiah Games), special guest musicians and speakers, bunk cheers, Israel Day activities and Shabbat celebrations.

Counselor In Training Program
The Counselor In Training (CIT) track is a leadership development program open to entering 12th grade campers. CITs receive training to develop counseling and coaching skills as well as mentorship from staff, coaches, and faculty. Training is designed to support CIT cohort as they transition from camper to staff member. Additionally, participants will engage in a tikkun olam project, travel on field trips, and connect through social activities.
As a counselor in training, you and your peers will have a unique opportunity to learn from many different role models, make a lasting impact on the camp community, explore who you are as an individual, and work towards mastering the skills you will need to succeed both at 6 Points and in the rest of your career. This summer, you will be leaving your role as a camper behind and gradually earning the responsibilities, freedoms, and fun that come with being a counselor. You will experience the day-to-day workload of a counselor, participate in specialized training programs, take ownership of a topic you are passionate about to share with the group, participate in community service, and so much more.
Other opportunities for teens entering grades 9 to 12
These teen programs are open to any Jewish high school student:
Imagine seeing Israel as an athlete, with sports as your backdrop. Imagine a group of teens challenged with the task of teaching young Israeli children how to cradle a lacrosse ball, or on mixed teams with their Israeli peers for a game of baseball, sharing in each other’s culture and learning from their experiences together. Imagine those same teens meeting with influential Israeli athletes, learning from and being inspired by them as mentors in the field. URJ Sports Israel brings like-minded 11th-12th grade athletes together to explore, play, teach, and learn Israel – all through the lens of sports.
Kutz brings together hundreds of the most talented and committed Reform Jewish teen leaders for a summer of fun and learning. Teens customize their own program focusing on developing skills in leadership, Jewish learning, social justice and the arts.
