Jewish Farm-to-Table Sleepaway Camp

Eden Village’s Music Specialists are the backbone of our camp culture. From morning meditative song circles to exuberant Friday night oneg and every after-meal blessing and song session, you’ll be bringing our community together through music. At Eden Village, we don’t listen to any recorded music- we make it all ourselves! You’ll spend your days teaching campers new instruments, how to write songs, form bands, and perform for each other. You’ll make every day at camp a dance party!
