Jewish Summer Camp...for Adults

Choose Your Own Adventure

It’s Camp Nai Nai Nai! The newest and most exhilarating experience on the Jewish calendar. Follow your curiosity and re-live the passion of your youth, where what you do for a living doesn’t define you, and spontaneous adventures await.

Camp Nai Nai Nai is a state-of-the-art Jewish summer camp for adults, nestled among 300 sprawling acres in the lush greenery of the Catoctin Mountains. Make the most of your getaway weekend with creative playshops (there is no “work” at Camp Nai Nai Nai), refreshing dips in the lake, spirited song sessions, color war, cozy all-camp meals, and more.

Recharge your city-worn spirit and tap into the exuberant energy only found at camp. As an inclusive and pluralistic Jewish space, Camp Nai Nai Nai offers you the Shabbat experience of a lifetime– amongst free-spirited friends (new and old) from around the country, against a picturesque backdrop of the campfire, lake, and a sprawling night sky full of stars.

Rediscover yourself at Camp Nai Nai Nai, where the world is yours to imagine.
It’s the ultimate Jewish summer camp experience…without all the rules!

Accommodations

ACCOMMODATIONS

There are two types of accommodations options for the weekend -- Traditional Camp Cabins or our Tent Village:
CAMP CABINS:
  • Cabins sleep between 4-20 campers and include spacious bunk beds, modern bathrooms, and ample storage space.
  • Campers will be assigned to a village based on gender, or have the option to stay in a co-ed "genderful" cabin.
TENT VILLAGE:
  • The Tent Village is great for couples, individuals or groups who want to be a part of a close-knit community while embracing their own space outdoors.
  • Tent Village campers are responsible for bringing their own tent or renting a tent, but have access to nearby bathrooms.
  • The tents will be pitched on wooden platforms that include electricity outlets.

Food


FOOD

This won’t be your typical camp food. Our camp chefs work hard to create menus that are filled with healthy, diverse menus that are super tasty to boot!  We’ll have meals that are a twist on old camp classics, but with upgrades for our adult palettes.

Our culinary team will work with each camper to ensure that any dietary restrictions are accounted for.  Gluten-free? No problem.  Not so great with dairy?  You’ll be great with the options at camp! You’ll have the opportunity to indicate your dietary restrictions when completing your registration form and if we have any questions for you, we’ll be in touch ahead of camp so we can make sure you’re well taken care of during the weekend.

All meals are included and are Glatt Kosher.
