B'nai B'rith Beber Camp has created life changing summers for Jewish children from around the country for more than 35 years! Campers ages 7-17 can explore and experience a stimulating, enriching summer with over 50 activities to choose from. Beber Camp offers 2, 4 and 8 week sessions for boys and girls and runs a full Kosher kitchen.
Beber is nestled in the rolling hills of Mukwonago, Wisconsin, only 90 minutes north of Chicago. Beber offers a wide variety of challenging and exciting programs: water-skiing, salining, windsurfing, high ropes, dance, arts and crafts, basketball, tennis, biking, cooking, ceramics, photography, recording studio, gaga, horseback riding and much more. There are 380 acres of private campgrounds including shoreline on beautiful Lake Beulah. The site offers a wonderful natural setting for children to explore their world and experience summertime fun and activities. S'mores, campfires, sunsets, songs and laughter are all part of a typical day. With 300 campers and 75 counselors, Beber is big enough to be able to enjoy fabulous, modern facilities and to offer a great variety of activities. However, it's small enough that e ery face is familiar, and camp is a personal, tight-knit family.
Beber’s family is divided into five programs: Makor, Kesher, Ramot, Pioneers, and CITs. Program placement is dependant upon entering grade level.
Makor (The Source) is for children entering grades 2 - 5. Many campers in our youngest division are away from home for the first time. A little extra TLC helps this younger group get the most out of their camping experience. Campers are introduced to all program areas with the goal of developing new skills and interests.
Kesher (The Bridge) is for children entering grades 6 and 7. Campers are encouraged to further develop skills already acquired as well as explore new interests. This division also participates in a 3-day specialized camping trip where campers get to choose from fishing, climbing, canoeing, hiking and biking.
Ramot (The Heights) is for teens entering grades 8-10. This program takes advantage of the maturity and interests of this age group and allows campers to customize activities, programs and trips to suit their needs.
The Pioneer Program is a leadership training program open to teens entering 11th grade. Admission is based on an application and phoine interview. This is the first of our 2-year staff training program and runs for 4 weeks, with an additional optional three-week trip to Israel. Pioneers begin the transition from camper to staff and focus on teambuilding and leadership training while still participating in the hobbies and activities that make camp fun!
CITs is a counselor training program open to teens entering 12th grade. Admission is based on a written application and phone interview. Throughout the course of this 8-week program, CITs complete the journey from camper to staff. CITs learn advanced counseling skills, the ins and outs of programming, and skills designed to help them instruct hobbies.
