Judaism Through Art
The URJ 6 Points Creative Arts Academy team loves to connect, create and celebrate! Bring your Ruach (spirit) and your artistic passion for a weekend of developing your leadership skills through the lens of creative expression.
Social Justice Teen Fellowship
The RAC’s social justice track brings the best of our virtual community organizing fellowship in-person to Coleman. Our track is designed to give high schoolers the skills you need to be organizers in your Jewish or local community or school. You will learn concrete community organizing skills and begin to plan a social justice project to make real change in the world.
Judaism Through Sports
Unleash the leader within you both on and off the field with LLTI’s dynamic sports track. Embrace the powerful connection between leadership and sportsmanship, whether you’re in the heat of the game or strategizing from the sidelines.
Elevate your skills, cultivate resilience, and amplify your leadership prowess. Don’t miss out on your journey toward becoming a formidable leader in any arena.
Song Leader Training
In a songleader training weekend through Sing Unto God, teens will receive needed skills, techniques, and repertoire to continue to support and prepare them to lead in camps, congregations, and communities. In addition to the relationships the teens will build with each other and dynamic teachers, they will also be supported in connecting with mentors and professionals on the ground to continue their songleading growth through the year. With relationships built with the camps and communities in which the teens songlead, not only will our teens learn important leadership and group building skills, but our broader communities will be strengthened by having dynamic leaders of song leading them now and into the future.
Judaism Through Science
Judaism and science are humanity’s methods of exploring, understanding, and shaping our place in the world and beyond. Join URJ 6 Points Sci-Tech Academy to learn hands-on scientific experiments you can bring back to your community, experience the potential of harnessing AI for Jewish learning and enrichment, and explore how Judaism and science can both contribute to and enhance one another.
Camp Coleman is so excited to be hosting the Liz Leadership Teen Initiative on September 29-October 1, in partnership with many other incredible camps and organizations. We are lucky to be joined by 6 Points Sports Academy, 6 Points Sci-Tech Academy, 6 Points Creative Arts Academy, Sing Unto God, and the Religious Action Center of the URJ.
This event will be hosted at URJ Camp Coleman and will allow us the opportunity to celebrate Sukkot together while we learn about leadership in Judaism with experts in the fields of music, arts, sports, social justice, and science.
