Camp JORI is a co-ed residential camp located on Worden’s Pond in Southern Rhode Island. Families may choose a 2 week experience for their first time camper, or a 4 or 8 week experience for first time or returning camper. JORI provides a well rounded camp experience that includes team and individual sports, ceramics, theatre arts, swimming, archery, radio station, and waterfront activities. Jewish Culture is a part of our daily activities. We employ Israeli staff which helps to provide a connection to Israel for our campers. Shabbat is celebrated with a festive dinner, camper led services, special events, and closed with Havdalah in a beautiful open-air setting. Campers in grades 2-10 live in a nurturing, family-like environment in brand new cabins complete with showers and bathrooms. Camper meals are served family style in our magnificent dining room. Dietary Laws are observed. JORI’s newest program, Reaching Up, provides an overnight experience for children ages 11-14 with special needs. Camp JORI provides a nurturing, day camp program for our youngest campers ages 6-9. Camp JORI has a long history as the only Jewish overnight camp in Rhode Island. Established in Narragansett in 1937, JORI relocated to a brand new site on Worden’s Pond in the summer of 2003. After being awarded a Spielberg Fellowship, a program of the Foundation for Jewish Camping supported, in part, by the Righteous Persons Foundation., JORI has expanded its theatre program and looks forward to moving into our brand new theatre in the summer of 2008.
