SPECIAL NEEDS CAMPERS: Our Inclusive Philosophy: BB Camp is proud to be a boundless Kehila (community) of different ages, denominations, backgrounds, languages, and abilities. When you’re part of a community like this — one that accepts, and encourages everyone’s strengths — it’s life changing. Campers and staff learn about themselves, relating to others, form a family of friends they’ll have for life, and of course, have a lot of fun along the way!
