Campers from across the Pacific Northwest – Oregon, British Columbia, Alaska, Montana, Idaho, and Washington – call Camp Kalsman home. We are committed to our six core values: friendship, sacred community, Reform Jewish identity, kindness, connection to Israel, and our relationship to nature.
As the West Coast’s largest Reform camp, we’ve impacted the lives of more than 100,000 children, teens, and adults as year after year, our campers return to renew the strong bonds of friendship they build here. Our mission is to inspire people to take camp home – applying their Jewish learning to their daily lives, ultimately bettering themselves, their communities and the world.
