  Camp Galil
Camp Galil, founded in 1946, is owned and operated by Mid-States Habonim Camping Association - a non-profit educational corporation.
The camp is set in the beautiful fields and forests of Bucks County, Pennsylvania, less than an hour from Philadelphia, and less than two hours from New York City.
Camp Galil has sports, swimming, activities, songs, arts and crafts, campfires, and special days just like any other summer camp, but there is an undefinable element of fun in everything that happens during the summer.
