Below are answers to some frequently asked questions about Camp Be’chol Lashon Online. Please contact us if you have other questions.
What ages does CBL Online cater to?
Camp Be’chol Lashon is typically an overnight camp in Northern California that is for all campers 8-18 and teaches a global view of the Jewish people who live around the world. Since it’s online this year, feel free to use your judgement about age.
Who is CBL Online for?
Camp Be’chol Lashon is the only summer camp focused on Jews as a multicultural people. CBL expands the borders of the Jewish community, allowing ethnically and racially diverse Jews to see themselves as an integral part of world Jewry. CBL brings kids of diverse experience and backgrounds together and facilitates deep and lasting friendships.
All children are invited. While we attract primarily multicultural kids, there are some with white siblings who attend and sometimes white kids whose families are aligned with the mission.
What should I do if my child has never been to camp and is on the fence about signing up?
We are happy to schedule a Skype call with you and your child to ask questions and discuss any concerns. In our experience, this is a great way to get to know the counselors, make a reassuring connection, and generate excitement.
