The mission of Surprise Lake Camp is to provide a high quality Jewish experience for children and young adults that is safe and fun and promotes personal growth. Through our summer camp and year round programs, we promote Jewish identity building, environmental stewardship, and the development of values and skills that help people lead fulfilling lives and become assets to their communities.  SurpriseLake Camp is committed to providing scholarships for families that cannot afford our full fee.


The Teva Learning Center’s mission is to renew the ecological wisdom inherent in Judaism and to renew the Jewish community through connection with God’s Creation. The Teva Learning Center is the leading Jewish environmental education program in the country. It is the only full-time year-round program dedicated to innovative, experiential Jewish education taught through the lens of the natural world. Teva reaches six thousand participants annually. It works with all denominations, ages, and constituent groups, including Jewish day schools, congregational schools, community centers, synagogues, youth groups, and camps.

Rating: 5 stars  

Surpise Lake Camp is by far a one of a kind place. It has shaped my life in a number of ways. I highly recommend this camp. It is a special place that will be part of your life forever. Once you are apart of it, you become part of this amazing SLC family.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

To say, Surprise Lake Camp is a family tradition, is an understatement See, my parents were counselors in the summer of '69 on teenside. That summer changed their lives forever. They met, fell in love and two years later they were married. This year they will be celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary. In 1977, I was born and then my sister in 1980. Being part of this organization shaped me into the person I am today. I learned to be an independent person at SLC. In addition, I have a love of Judaism

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would not make any changes. SLC has been around since 1902. They change with the times, and continue to stick to their core values and mission statement. What other camp do you know that has been around over 100 years?
