Years back the only Conservative Jewish Overnight camp of Northern California, Camp Arazim had to close it’s doors after 30 years. (Now there are rumbles of bringing Ramah to NorCal.) Some of it’s Alumi have band together to organize an all camp reunion that will take place Sunday, in Oakland. If you’re an Arazim Alumi of any sort they’d love to see you there! (Evite, Facebook). Even if you can’t join the reunion in person, you can join it online by joining the Camp Arazim Facebook Group, where you might find yourself in a camp photo.

Calling all Vatikim, Nitzanim, CIT’s, counselors, Roshes, Directors, Music and Art Directors, Swim Instructors, specialists and Rabbis, we need YOU to report to a very special CAMP ARAZIM reunion. Please join us for laughter, songs and tears as we come together after many years apart.

Kindly report on time to the Temescal Regional Recreation Park North Site on August 3 at 10:30am. Your newest campers and counselors (children and spouses/significant others) are welcome. Go to for more information and directions. There is parking on the street or a $5 parking lot.

There will be morning snacks of bagels and coffee, a talent show (more specifically Rob balancing his children on his chin) and a slide show (translation: bring your past Arazim photo albums to share).

**Please note that all treats and care packages must be turned in to your counselors on arrival (translation: bring a brunch dish to share potluck style). Boys will be permitted to visit girls’ campsite, but each must stick to their own bathrooms. Most important, NO SNEAKING OUT of this event or Shmira will get you!!!

We are asking for a small contribution of $10 per adult (children are free) to help cover the cost of use of the site. Please pay using the paypal feature on the evite. Early payment is much appreciated. Any extra money will be donated to a Jewish organization.

Also, please forward this invite to any Camp Arazimers that you do not see on this list, we want to see everybody!

Can’t wait to see you all there!
