About Blue Star Camps
Blue Star campers get the best of both worlds by being part of a smaller, more intimate camp, while also benefiting from the extensive resources of the larger Blue Star community. Blue Star's six progressive Jewish camp programs allow the camp experience to grow with our campers, and make each year a new adventure.
Founded by the Popkin family in 1948 with a vision of creating a vibrant and inclusive Jewish camp community where campers could learn about their shared history and identity, Blue Star always has been a “camp with purpose.” Family owned and led since its founding, Blue Star continues to nurture the vision of our camp’s founders, instill the values of kindness, inclusion, social justice and environmental stewardship, and empower children and young adults to contribute positively to the world around them. Blue Star continues to operate with the intention of being “Kind to each other; Kind to the Planet.”
