Kids Camp and Teen Program


At Limmud Bay Area, parents, kids, teens and grandparents have the opportunity to learn, play, and explore together, as well as apart. Our Camp Limmud Director, Miriam Schwartz-Kanani, now returning for her fifth year, helped designed Camp Limmud from her experiences working at some of the best Bay Area youth programs like Urban Adamah, Camp Tawonga, and Wilderness Torah. Teen programming is overseen by vetted counselors and facilitated by professional Jewish educators. This year’s staff is terrific.

Each suite in Sauvignon Village at Sonoma State University has a living room, kitchen,  2 “double” rooms and 2 “singles” and small kids can opt for sleeping bags so pile in however you like. See fees for details on special pricing for kids, parents, single parents, and large family groups.


Kids (18 months through 3rd Grade) can look forward to drum workshops, beeswax candle making and tie-dye crafts. Divided into three separate age-groups, Gan Limmud participants will learn about “Shomrei Adamah” (“Guardians of the Earth”). Fun activities include: music, crafts, drama, yoga, picnic at the lake, storytelling and Shabbat.



Preteens at Limmud (4th grade and older) will experience a weekend of adventure with Camp Gilboa! Together, we’ll participate in fun challenges and games that will help us explore values, identity, and the world around us. Fun activities include: an Iron Chef competition, art, time at the lake, and a trip to the climbing wall!

Camp Gilboa is brought to us by Habonim Dror



Teens (10th Grade +) can look forward to learning about their own individualized and non-virtual game of “Call of Duty.” Fun activities include: leadership development with Shabbat & Havdallah, community service, a Cappella workshop, drum circle, obstacle course & climbing wall, & Late Night Limmud fun.




With a love of children, play and Judaism our Camp Limmud counselors are all seasoned and vetted educators. Learn about each of the Limmud Bay Area educators.
