  1. Kids Need Camp

After so many months of our campers (and CBM staff) being connected to laptops and devices, we all need camp and the opportunity to play, learn, grow, experience, and be connected to each other again!

  1. Camp Can Adapt

Taking into account all required and recommended health and safety protocols and guidelines, we will consider every aspect of our operation and re-imagine, when necessary, to create adaptations which enable CBM to be optimally healthy and safe. At the same time we will continue to focus on exhilarating adventures, building connections to our global Jewish community, gaining knowledge and comfort in the great outdoors, forming and strengthening lifelong friendships, and helping every child feel included, accomplished, and loved. We will continue to capture our ‘signature’ Camp Barney traditions and culture, ‘ruach’ (spirit) and joy of being together at camp!
