Camp Pembroke is all about tradition, values, friendship and fun! The all-girls environment, free of social pressures that exist outside of camp, exposes our campers to experiences they might otherwise never have. Founded in 1935 by Eli and Bessie Cohen, Camp Pembroke is an all-girls camp located in a quiet cove on Lake Oldham in Pembroke, Massachusetts. Our family atmosphere, rich camping tradition and Judaic spirit create a special place where girls develop strong character and form life-long friendships. We encourage our campers to reach their ultimate potential by being active, acquiring new skills, learning to be part of a community, and challenging themselves with new experiences. Campers are exposed to a wide variety of land and water sports, and creative and performing arts to learn new skills and perfect ones they already have. The camp experience is guided by the Cohen Camps? dedication to the spiritual and ethical values of Judaism that enrich the Camp Pembroke experience. Campers participate in Israeli dance, music and the exploration of Judaic themes. Blessings are recited in the morning, before and after every meal, and with the weekly celebration of Sabbath filled with ruach and joy. To further enrich the Pembroke experience many young women become leaders within the camp by transitioning through the Dor L?Dor Leadership Program. Leadership development continues formally in the following Junior Counselor year and throughout the summer for all counselors. We are Camp Pembroke?a sisterhood of women, spanning multiple generations, with everlasting memories, values and pride.?
