More than a summer experience, Shoresh connects Jews of all backgrounds with programs throughout the year.
Nestled in the rural community of Adamstown, Maryland, with the beautiful backdrop of the Catoctin Mountains, Camp Shoresh did not always call its current a 107-acre property home. In its first summer 38 years ago in Frederick, Maryland, it hosted only 19 children and was housed in the old Beth Sholom synagogue on 2nd Street. The shul was over 100 years old— not the ideal setting for a three-week summer camp. From its inception, however, Shoresh has always maintained its vision of providing a quality Jewish camping experience through its exceptional programming and amazing staff. From day one, it hired fantastic counselors who had the whole package: people who had the ability to teach Torah, play sports, create art and have fun, as well as serve as positive role models.
