The people I met at Bais Chana, the atmosphere, and the learning have changed and improved my life more than anything else... and I know I'm not the only one. Thank you.

Bais Chana was one of the best experiences of my life. It was a warm environment where girls and women of all ages were able to find something in common. After only a few days at bais Chana I felt as if I'd known the women there my whole life, and I still Lee in touch with many of them. Every one of the classes was incredible, and it was always a number one priority for me to get to all of them no matter how late I'd been up the night before.

I went to the Bais chana uncamp in Iowa this summer, and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. It was an amazingly kind, nurturing environment, and the staff was absolutely wonderful. The classes and activities were inspiring and fun, and the relaxed atmosphere made everybody feel comfortable asking any questions. (Side point, the grounds were stunning)Thank-you, bais chana, for a great summer!

This retreat helped me to regroup and refocus my mind and energy on Hashem because He is the one who truly runs the world. I went two time and it was absolutely wonderful. The women that I met and bonded with are amazing!!! The atmosphere is relaxing. The food is superb!!! The rooms are glorious!!! The speakers are amazing and insightful. I would definitely recommend this experience to any single mom out there. May they continue to help anyone that needs.

The best non profit for women around. I went to Bais Chana for the first time last summer and it was the best decision I made. I walked in one person and left a week later totally transformed. The staff is incredible, the support and knowledge from everyone is unmeasurable. Whether you go to one of their many retreats they offer or you learn online remotely it all impacts the growth of Jewish women everywhere. Bais Chana does so much for so many women all around the world. Go Bais Chana!

Bais Chana is amazing. That means the people are exceptional, the teachers are profound, thought-provoking, and make themselves available for hours of personal time with anyone who wants one on one time with them. And the food is delicious and healthy!

Bais Chana is less a "camp" than a warm and inspiring community for Jewish women of all ages and affiliations. The people at Bais Chana are so consistently kind and giving that one feels one has entered a different universe. Although some of the Chabad philosophy taught in the courses was difficult for me to swallow as a very modern Jew, on the whole, Bais Chana provided a uniquely positive experience, and I look forward to returning.

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

It's hard to say; probably none.

I honestly did not know what I signed up for when I decided to go to the Bais Chana UnCamp. The 3 week program exceeded any exectations I could have possibly had. Not only did I have an amazing and fun time but I gained so much! The schedule is a perfect balance of learning and engaging activities. The classes are so insightful and make you think like you've never thought before! The activities are so fun and really bring closer to your camp mates. I left this camp with 30 new sisters and a notebook full of new things that I leaned. I would recommend this camp to ALL Jewish high school girls. You will not regret coming here. In fact you will probably return to camp for more than one year as many campers do. I would not change a single thing in the UnCamp program and look forward to attending many more Bais Chana programs!!

Great Experience! I have gone to the the Bais Chana girl's camp, not once, but 2 times. It really helps people (esp. girls) to get to know what and who they are. They develop a bond with their faith, what it is, and how to express that. If your Jewish, you must look into this. It will recharge you in some way.

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

Their girl's camp.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every six months
