Parents (and kids) speak

I've been in camp four years and let me tell you, they have been the best four summers of my life!

...friends that you never forget... camp is just so much fun!

I just wanted to let you know that I had an amazing time in camp. I loved the trips we had. I’ve made a lot of friends. I will be going back home telling everyone my awesome experience at Camp Nageela West!

Incredible staff and management. Receptive and Empathetic staff who clearly take an interst in each cgild. And great programming.
She did in fact have the best summer ever in a positive, enriching Jewish environment.

Our boys had the most amazing time at camp.  They came back enthusiastic about participating in Jewish activities, happy beyond measure and passionate about attending Camp Nageela again in the future.  The camp counsellors have remained in contact with our boys.



​To be honest, coming to Nageela has made me realize that I can overcome the obstacles in my life and I now have a different perspective in life. Being in this camp has given me more knowledge and a lot of great memories that I’ve shared with campers and counselors. I am not lying when I say this is the happiest I’ve been in a while and it’s all thanks to Camp Nageela West!!!

"Looking at the photos and hearing his enthusiasm about the time there, I can tell he was having the time of his life.
He wants to go again!!

You did a wonderful job and I hope you'll be doing this camp again next summer."

My son came back more mature and emotionally stronger from Camp Nageela. Camp Nageela-West seem to have been the perfect match-camp for him, because it offered him both outdoor activities, a sense of belonging to the group, Jewish values...  and the ability to realize he can be away from home and still enjoy. The fact that the camp is not too far from San Diego is a huge plus for me, also, the actual place, Sedona, seems to have a magnificent effect on one's well being, then, of course, Rabbi Locker and all staff members seem to have been able to support my son and other kids and keep them focused whenever they were homesick, which is extremely important to me, especially, since this was my first time sending my son....

"Thanks again for giving my daughter a great summer!"

"I just wanted to thank you for everything!  We weren't sure how his first sleep-away camp experience would turn out, so we're thrilled that it was a success."

"I just wanted to email you to thank you . My daughter had an amazing time!!! "
