At this extraordinary time of uncertainty, the need to support Camp has never been more critical. We want to be here now and into the future.
We are grateful that The Harold Grinspoon Foundation (HGF) recognizes this need and has announced a new $10 million matching grant opportunity that will be shared by 100 Jewish overnight camps across North America, including ours. This means that your donation will be matched $1 for every $2 donated. Every dollar counts and makes a difference.
We know that this is a difficult time for all and we are truly grateful for your partnership and generous support.
At 6 Points Sci-Tech Academy-West, scientific inquiry meets fun! Campers entering grades 3-10 spend 12 days exploring robotics, video game design, environmental science, digital media, and a host of other fun activities in a warm, supportive environment with campers who share similar interests.
Throughout their experience, campers explore what Judaism means to them—and how this complements their interests in science and technology. Our five core values shape our community: Heritage, Curiosity, Innovation, Radical Acceptance and Patience & Perseverance. Campers gain an understanding of their place in the long history of the Jewish people’s contributions to science and technology, and build a strong connection to Israel as an incubator of innovation. 6 Points Sci-Tech Academy-West is the Reform Jewish camp that curious minds have been waiting for!
Located just outside of Los Angeles on the campus of Cal Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks, 6 Points Sci-Tech Academy-West offers all of the advantages of a top-quality educational facility along with access to the best and brightest minds in the Jewish science and technology community.
6 Points Sci-Tech Academy-West fosters young people’s curiosity in the context of Jewish values and community. Here, campers co-create every aspect of their experience, including:
- Choosing a learning track that matches their interests
- Developing projects that ignite their imagination
- Creating the Shabbat experience in our community with other campers and staff
- Learning the skills of inquiry that science and technology requires
- Discovering how Jewish values align with modern science and technology
Active minds, active bodies!
Camp means being active, both mentally and physically. Our science and technology programs are designed specifically for the camp environment, with active, outdoor learning experiences. The educational portions of our program are complemented by recreation time each day, when campers can play sports like soccer, basketball, gaga (Israeli dodgeball), swimming, and volleyball.
What do you think of when you think of camp?
S’mores at the campfire. Tie-dye t-shirt making. Spirited song sessions. Pool parties. Friendly counselors. Camp traditions. Cheering in the dining hall. Lifelong friendships. Sci-Tech is more than just a place to learn and have fun – it is a community where campers feel welcomed and at home.
