Our regional camp URJ Camp Coleman is the Jewish summer home for nearly 1000 young Jews from the Southeastern U.S. The camp is guided by four values: Kavod - Respect, Kehilah – Community, Shalom- Peace and Chesed- Kindness. These values are found throughout the camp. The are engraved upon arches near the oldest campers’ bunks. But they’re also found in every discussion and interaction that takes place. Every counselor and most campers can recite them aloud. When someone does something disrespectful, his or her peers often say You’re not showing kavod. The campers learn what it means to be guided by the values of our tradition.
