BB Camp’s Second Century Capital Campaign

Our Children. Our Commitment.

The words are inspired by the words B’nai B’rith, which mean “children of the covenant.” B’nai reminds us that we are all children of a great legacy, and that caring for future generations is core to who we are. B’rith reminds us of the dedication to Jewish life and values that we are committed to sustain. With the spirit of caring for our children and affirming our commitment to their future, we prepare for a new century of BB Camp.

Second Century Campaign News:
Thanks to generous donors, we are closing in on our $13.3 million campaign goal!

B’nai B’rith Camp is about to turn 100. We’re not just aging gracefully. We are brimming with vitality, enthusiasm—let’s just call it ruach!
As we reach this milestone, we can look back with pride to visionary community leaders who cared for our special home on Devil’s Lake, decade after decade, since 1921. In every generation, people like Julia (Mrs. Isaac) Swett, Julius Meier, Milt Margulies, Milt Carl, and hundreds of others have assured BB Camp was there for our future. The strength and longevity of the BB Camp program is a testament to their dedication.
We stand on their shoulders as we look toward the second century of BB Camp by completing a campaign that has generated extraordinary generosity from all over our region and beyond. Together, we will hand down to new generations an amazing camp that builds the character of our children, and helps mold the leaders of our community for the future.
