Surrounded by more than 500 acres in the picturesque North Georgia Appalachian and Blue Ridge mountains, Camp Barney Medintz campers experience the magic of summer camp amidst mountains, lakes, rushing streams and pine forests, and the joy of making lifelong friends while challenging themselves with new activities and gaining self-confidence and independence that will benefit them for a lifetime. Along the way, each and every day, they develop and solidify their connection to their Jewish identity. Camp Barney Medintz is truly Our Summer Place.
