Camp Urban Adamah

Each camp session is unique in its own way. Families love sending their children to multiple sessions of camp. We find that more time on the farm nourishes the connections children make here.

Campers must be dropped off and picked up at the farm. We encourage carpooling! We offer limited 10-minute parking on our site, and street parking is available. One of the Camp Urban Adamah staff will supervise sign-in and sign-out by parents/guardians each day.

Daily transportation to/from the Urban Adamah Farm is available for the weeks of Pollinator Party, July 15-26th for campers who are signed up for After Camp. Transportation service is available to campers an additional $75 fee per week (this is a significantly subsidized rate in recognition that campers are not in After Camp for the full program). Pick-up/drop-off location TBD (central zone for registered families) at 8 am and 5pm. Families must provide a car seat for any child under the age of 8. We need a minimum of six registered campers by March 1st, so please register soon! If we are not able to fill, UA will do our best to help arrange carpools from San Francisco or offer you a full refund.

Yes. Each day we will provide healthy, organic, vegetarian snacks. We do our best to accommodate campers with particular food allergies. Campers should bring their own nut-free lunch. Campers should also bring their own labeled reusable water bottle.

We have full-service gender neutral bathrooms on site with running water and flush toilets. Please note that all children enrolled in our Sprouts week must be fully potty trained.

A small backpack containing:
 a bag lunch, water bottle, sun hat, sunscreen and close-toed shoes (on their feet!).

For Sprouts week, we also ask you to send a change of clothes, and a small blanket and pillow for our cozy relaxation time. Please label all items with your child’s name.

Camp Urban Adamah is welcoming and accommodating for a wide variety of Jewish backgrounds (including campers who aren’t Jewish!). All ingredients for snacks prepared and served at camp are certified kosher. Jewish content at camp is thoughtfully incorporated and no prior Jewish background or knowledge is assumed or required. Please check out Jewish Tradition at Camp Urban Adamah and feel free to be in touch with any further questions.

Urban Adamah cosponsors many of its programs with Bay Area Jewish organizations and institutions. From a campers’ perspective, the camp week will be nearly the same as if Urban Adamah were offering it on our own. The only differences are that kosher supervision will be held by Rabbi Yonatan Cohen from Congregation Beth Israel, and we will use the traditional versions of blessings over food. Other than these two things, this week will be like all others.

Yes. To add your child to the waitlist, register as usual using the waitlist option.
