Welcome to Camp Ben Frankel! 2017

For over 65 years, Camp Ben Frankel has offered children and teens an opportunity to grow both individually and as a member of the Jewish Community. Located in the rolling hills of Southern Illinois, camp is the perfect setting for campers to be with friends while learning about their heritage and themselves. The friendships gained and lessons learned at Camp Ben Frankel will last a lifetime. Our campers return year after year because they know that, when they come to camp, they become part of the Camp Ben Frankel Family.


Camp Ben Frankel is a small, single-session camp held at the Touch of Nature
Center at the University of Southern Illinois. The camp session is four weeks in
duration. The next session will run from June 25th-July 23rd, 2017.
