A Home For G-d What does it mean to make our world a home for G-d? A basic tenet of our faith is that "the entire world is filled with His presence" and "there is no place void of Him." So it's not that we have to bring G-d into the material world -- He is already there. But G-d can be in the world without being at home in it.  Being "at home" means being in a place that is receptive to your presence, a place devoted to serving your needs and desires. It means being in a place where you are your true, private self, as opposed to the public self you assume in other environments.

Shwayder Camp of Congregation Emanuel Congregation Emanuel,
51 Grape Street Denver, CO 80220 Phone: 303-388-4013 Fax: 303-388-6328

Shwayder is one of the oldest Reform Jewish summer camp in the United States, established in 1948. Our 242 acres of towering pine trees started as a fishing retreat owned by Maurice B. Shwayder, founder of the Samsonite Luggage company. When he died in 1948 Shwayder's widow, Ruth, donated the land to Temple Emanuel to be used specifically as a children's summer camp. Her vision was to create a mountain enclave where children could live in nature, learn about Judaism, and personalize the ideals of our Jewish community.

For more than 50 years, we have offered each camper "A Summer To Build Your Life On." We have remained a small camp (our current capacity is 120 campers per session) where we can spend lots of time emphasizing our relationships -- with ourselves, with our friends, and with God. All of our activities exist within the framework of building a community where everyone is valued, everyone is loved, and everyone has the chance to excel.

Shwayder Camp is located at 10,200 feet in the beautiful Rocky Mountains, on the slopes of Mt. Evans. We have 240 acres of spectacular mountain forest.
