The Jewish Organic Farm Camp

Your expertise will enrich our fully equipped professional woodshop, guiding campers in the art of creating from nature’s bounty. You’ll intertwine Jewish values with the craft of woodworking, teaching campers to transform wood into functional and artistic creations while fostering a deep connection to the natural world. Your guidance in projects will not only impart technical skills but also instill a sense of patience, respect for the environment, and appreciation for the spiritual aspect of creating with one’s hands. We seek a specialist who is eager to blend artistic expression, environmental stewardship, and Jewish traditions into a meaningful and enriching experience for our campers.

Eden Village West is an organic farm-to-table residential Jewish camp in Sonoma County, California with a 6-week overnight summer program as well as other farm programming throughout the spring and fall. Our campers enjoy farming, wilderness and homesteading skills, culinary arts, music, and sports as they become empowered to promote a more environmentally sustainable, socially just, and spiritually connected world for all.
