Camp Ben Frankel

Welcome to the #1 Rated Jewish Camp in North America! Camp Ben Frankel is a coed, overnight, non-denominational Jewish summer camp located two hours south of St. Louis, MO in Southern Illinois. We serve children entering 3rd through 12th grades (current 2nd-11th graders) Our premier program is our four week overnight camp (JUNE 23-JULY 19), with the option for a two week "Rookie" session (JUNE 23-JULY 7) for first time and younger campers. Camp Ben Frankel has consistently rated #1 in all Jewish Camps in North America in areas such as likelihood of parents to recommend, building positive relationships between campers, support for mental and emotional well being, healthy environment, and quality of Camp Directors.


CBF is a pluralist Jewish community. That means we provide opportunities for each camper, from any Jewish background, to create meaningful Jewish experiences to ensure they feel positively connected with Judaism, tikkun olam, and Israel.

We celebrate Shabbat, have a kosher kitchen, and partner with the Foundation for Jewish Camp and MASA Israel to infuse our activities with the latest best practices in Jewish informal education. Example Jewish activities include art in prayer, tikkun olam, Hebrew (basic, intermediate, conversational), Jewish values in nature, Israeli culture, history of Israel, bar/bat mitzvah tutoring, Jewish identity discussion, Jewish storytelling, torah/haftorah reading, Sedra scenes (skits based upon the torah portion), Mussar, and more.
