Since 1948, Golden Slipper Camp in the Pocono Mountains has provided kids, ages 7 to 15, with a setting that lets them discover more about themselves in a supportive, nurturing environment, while also learning about Jewish values. Located on 600 beautifully wooded acres overlooking a private lake, Golden Slipper Camp fosters independence, builds self-esteem, and encourages skill development with positive role models. We offer dozens of activities and an expanding, exciting assortment of Jewish programming, while providing modern, secure overnight camping facilities. And our camp "spirit" and community is second to none. Here at Slipper, kids learn while they're having fun and make friendships that last a lifetime.
Through a variety of philanthropic endeavors, Golden Slipper Club & Charities fosters an atmosphere of giving and friendship. We boast about our "hands-on" approach, and it's true. Our members give from their hearts - financially, through their expertise, their time, and their teamwork - to help the organization raise money to fund a children's camp, a college scholarship fund, a center for senior citizens, and many other initiatives.
In 1922, a group of Jewish Masons gathered regularly to socialize and play cards. They'd divide up their winnings and distribute them to families in need of money for food, coal, and other essentials. These selfless acts of kindness are the roots and the inspiration of Golden Slipper Club & Charities, now nearly 1,000 members strong.
Today the tradition continues. Golden Slipper continually finds ways to serve young and old. Operated almost exclusively by members and volunteers, Golden Slipper Club takes pride in serving the Greater Philadelphia region.
