Philadelphia's Torah Day Camp
Camp Achdus is a summer camp for boys entering Kindergarten through 8th grade. It is the first choice of parents and kids throughout the greater Philadelphia region, from Bensalem to Cherry Hill, Rhawnhurst to Bala Cynwyd.
Camp Achdus is a licensed and certified day camp. All of our staff are trained and certified. You can be confident that your child will be safe, cared for, and have a blast!
The Camp Achdus philosophy is that the chinuch (formative Jewish education) of our children requires year-round involvement, and that the summer period is not only critical to maintaining the child's achievements, but specifically endowed with channels to amplify and to reinforce them through the unique experience that summer camp affords.
