Association of Independent Jewish Camps
We are a community of Jewish Summer camps that challenges and nurtures fun, growth, and individual and community-based summer experiences.

Camp Laurelwood

Located on 550 acres in serene Marshall, Indiana, children travel from across the Midwest to experience the magic of a Nageela summer. Camp Nageela Midwest is an extraordinary three-week experience of fun, friendship and unforgettable memories. Our extensive daily schedule is a camper’s dream and includes both traditional and specialty camp activities and surprises. Our array of options satisfies those who envision themselves either playing sports, horseback riding, canoeing, woodworking, or enjoying any of our other varied activities while learning valuable skills for life. As the only single gender Jewish overnight camp serving our demographic, Camp Nageela Midwest fills a very unique niche.
