Biographical / Historical

Founded in 1927, Camp Avoda is an overnight summer camp experience for Jewish boys ages 7-15. The Camp, founded by leaders of the then Brockton Y.M.H.A. and New Bedford Y.M.H.A., was created to offer Jewish boys a summer alternative to city living and to build future Jewish lay leaders, professional leaders, community leaders, and family leaders—all while maintaining a tuition structure designed to make attendance available to as many Jewish camper families as possible. Avoda remains an independent and unaffiliated non-profit 501(c) 3 Jewish camp managed by an all volunteer board of directors. Avoda receives no regular or formal foundation, federation, or community center support for operations.
