Camp Bob Waldorf* on the Max Straus Campus enriches the lives of youth throughout Greater Los Angeles with the tools and support system they need to thrive from elementary school to college and beyond, driven by the values of community, inclusion, identity and respect. Through our residential summer camp programs, weekend retreats, outdoor backpacking trips, college scholarship programs and mentoring activities, we provide over 1,500 underserved children each year – regardless of their family’s financial ability – with a safe, nurturing environment where they learn to be creative, responsible, and thoughtful individuals.
Our non-profit camp is owned and operated by Jewish Big Brothers Big Sisters of Los Angeles (JBBBSLA)and sprawls over 112 acres in the beautiful Verdugo Hills in Glendale, California. We are accredited by the American Camp Association, which approves camps’ standards of operation, particularly those related to program quality and the health and safety of campers and staff.
