The Cohen Camps: Pembroke, Tel Noar, and Tevya

Camp Pembroke is an all-girls camp fostering feelings of sisterhood, camaraderie and warm friendships.  Celebrating over 70 years of quality camping, at Pembroke, the girls can let their hair down and be themselves.  Pembroke offers a swimming pool, horseback riding and ice-skating.

Camp Tel Noar is a co-ed camp with a heritage of over 60 ears.  Camp cabins surround a central lounge with a fireplace to foster community living and interaction between different aged campers.  Celebrating Shabbat at Tel Noar is a special celebration of song, dance, and having fun being Jewish.

Camp Tevya, also co-ed, has over 65 years of summer memories and is the largest of the three camps with almost 600 acres in which to spread out.  The pride and spirit of Tevya can’t be beat and neither can the unforgettable sunsets over Lake Potanipo.

All three Cohen Camps offer arts and crafts, athletics, visual and performing arts, waterfront sports, a full gamut of electives, inter-camp competition, special events, trips and more.
