JeWitch Camp 2020
A JeWitchy Retreat Celebrating the New Year for Trees February 7-9, 2020 in Oakland, CA
Don’t miss this opportunity to engage with Rabbi Arthur Waskow, internationally renowned teacher and activist. Reb Arthur says this is his first public appearance on the West Coast in 10 years and, at age 87, he doubts that he will teach out here again.
~ What Is JeWitch Camp? ~
JeWitch Camp 2020 is a non-residential retreat for Jews, Pagans, and those who love them, celebrating Shabbat and Tu B'Shevat -- the New Year for Trees.
Camp is highly participatory: rituals, workshops, music, dancing, storytelling, and connecting with friends, new and old. We are blessed with an extraordinary teaching and facilitation team -- see below for their bios.
Camp runs Friday morning through Sunday night. Activities go from approximately 10am to 9pm each day. The magic continues after 9pm with optional late-night activities including songs, snacks, shmoozing, etc.
Campers also receive early access to a special day-long workshop on Monday, Feb. 10 at a discounted price. Information will be sent to you after completing registration.
~ Location and Meals ~
We gather indoors and outdoors at Humanist Hall, 390 27th Street in Oakland, CA. There are plenty of public transit options nearby and space for bike parking on-site.
On Sunday morning we take a field trip to the Oakland hills where we will share camp's magic and continue our learning with some of our teachers at Wilderness Torah's Tu B'Shevat in the Redwoods.
Yummy vegetarian dinners and Shabbat brunch are provided.
~ Our Community ~
JeWitch Camp is produced by JeWitch Collective. We are a community of Jews, Pagans, and allies who draw on Earth-based magic to pursue tikkun olam (repair of the world).
We strive to create a joyful, inclusive, welcoming and respectful community. We honor self-definition of all kinds, including beliefs, identities and practices. Radical inclusivity is a shared value. Pursuing this enhances camp culture and challenges practices of inequity and domination that hurt us all.
Children and teens are welcome at camp with their adult!
Physical and financial accessibility are community priorities. Our camp's location is wheelchair accessible. In order for everyone to be able to participate, we ask people to come fragrance free -- including laundry, hair and body products (more info at
). Please let us know if you need ASL interpretation or other accommodations.
~ The Money Part ~
A limited number of early bird tickets are available at a sliding scale rate of $375-625. Our actual cost is $430.
We offer some financial aid to campers in financial need who are part of groups that are generally under-represented or marginalized in Bay Area Jewish and Pagan spaces.
