Camp Barney is owned and operated by the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta. We are a pluralistic camp, meaning that we are not affiliated with a specific movement or Jewish denomination. We organically weave Jewish culture into many aspects of daily life at camp such as using Hebrew words for various areas of camp, saying blessings before and after meals, sharing beautiful Shabbat traditions together, and learning about and celebrating Israeli life and culture.
There is no requirement for staff to identify as Jewish or connect to Jewish culture or ritual in a particular way. Our camp community welcomes anyone who respects our values and mission.
