A Vision for a Jewish Summer Camp

Beth Tfiloh’s first day camp was organized at Garrison Boulevard with 75 campers to provide “a program of wholesome recreation integrated with a program of Jewish living.”  The Owings Mills camp site was purchased in 1950 for $33,000 with a swimming pool, a dining hall, a lake for boating, field, and bunk houses. As part of its Jewish culture program, Hebrew signs throughout. 

THE HOME CAMP – The new Beth Tfiloh summer camp  included indoor and outdoor programming at its Garrison Boulevard complex.
