A coed, overnight, summer camp for Jewish children and teens located near Carbondale, IL. Since 1949, our campers have developed lifelong friendships and deep connections to Judaism and Israel. With enrollment limited to only 100 campers, children enjoy a small, personal community with lots of individual attention. Established as a program of the Jewish Federation of Southern Illinois, Southeast Missouri and Western Kentucky, for almost 70 years Camp Ben Frankel has touched the lives of thousands of Jewish children. We are viewed by our families as a hidden gem - our campers receive the same great experience as at other camps at a lower cost.
