Due to the COVID-19 restrictions we are not running any face-to-face youth provision at this time. However, the good news is that JLGB Virtual is continuing every Monday - Thursday until the end of August. Watch now at www.jlgb.org/virtual

International Summer Camp

JLGB Summer Camp is bound to be the best week away you'll ever have! It's the most talked-about summer camp in the UK and, every summer for over 100 years, the JLGB has delivered an action-packed, high-octane programme of activities for young Jewish people not just from the UK but from all over the world!

You and your friends, old and new, will take part in a huge range of new and exciting adrenaline-filled activities including go-karting, archery, paintballing, mountain biking, climbing, abseiling and canoeing as well as more chilled stuff like arts and crafts, music, drama, campfires and discussions.

If that lot doesn't tire you out, the nights are just as much fun! They are filled with talent shows, special guests including comedians and hypnotists, murder mystery games, discos, game shows, bonfires, BBQs, music and parties!

On JLGB Summer Camp you'll make friends for life, not just from your local area but from Jewish communities all over the UK and around the world.

An average day may look something like this:


Wake Up Get ready for the day and recover from the previous day's excitement- there are prizes to be won for the Best Kept Tent.

Breakfast Time to catch up with your friends over the most important meal of the day which includes cereal, challah, cheese, toast, eggy bread, cheese on toast, scrambled eggs and more.

Parade Basically an assembly where the band plays and we read out any announcements and practise for our Open Day display.

Platoon Briefing Your group leaders will see how you're all getting on and go through the itinerary for the day.

Enterprise Clubs Your chance to take part in activities covering our six Enterprise Zones (Learning & Creativity; Active & Healthy; Citizenship & Community; Social & Emotional; Leadership Development and Jewish Identity).


Lunch Delicious and Kosher! We can cater for vegetarians, vegans and those with specific dietary requirements so please make sure you mention it on your application form. Meals will include pasta with various sauces, garlic bread, jacket potatoes, baked beans, pizzas with various toppings, chips, beef and veggie burgers, corn on the cob, salads, pasta bake, filled rolls and sandwiches and fruit.

Optional Activities There is so much on offer you will struggle to choose what to do but, whatever you do, it will be unbelievably exciting!

Whole Camp Activity Everyone joins in a mass activity like Sports Day, Capture the Flag, Water Wars or Scavenger Hunts.

Sports Competition We play a wide range of sports for all abilities including football, cricket, rounders, hockey and even Ultimate Frisbee!

Free Time You and your friends, old and new get to hang out, chat and relax.


Dinner You're going to be starving after such a packed day and you will enjoy stuff like soups, kebabs, schnitzels, sausage rolls, fajitas, roast chicken, chips, latkes, roast potatoes, rice salads and fruit.

Evening Entertainment If JLGB camps are famous for anything, it's the fantastically brilliant evening extravaganzas, including talent shows, murder mysteries, interactive game shows, late night discos and, for those who prefer something a bit quieter, we show films most evenings!

Hot Chocolate We are British after all so a hot chocolate and biscuits before bed is just the ticket to wind down!

Switch Mess After the under 15s have gone to bed, the older ones enjoy an extra hour in the Switch Mess and includes activities planned by a committee made up of your fellow members of the Mess. If you're 15 by August 31st, you can join in.

Bedtime is 10.45pm for those under 15 and 11.45pm for the rest of you but we do advise getting a decent night's sleep, because you'll have to go through another activity filled day!
