For thousands of years, our ancestors have gathered for festivals, harvests, holidays, celebrations, and causes. As a people, we are intrinsically passionate about community. Trybal is a national nonprofit that reimagines Jewish gatherings in a modern world. We offer innovative getaways for young adults and communities to connect, explore, play, and celebrate in a socially Jewish context. Our experiences are designed to make you feel part of something bigger than yourself. So come give it a try.
Our experiences are filled with go-getters, creatives, influencers, and laid-back kids at heart in their 20s and 30s. No matter if you're an extrovert, an introvert, or just open-minded -- you’ll feel right at home.
MEMBERS OF THE TRIBE (MOT)
You can be Jewish. Jew-ish. Or even just ish. There are no eligibility interviews. If you're on board for being part of a socially Jewish experience, we want you in.
SOLO TRAVELERS, GROUPS + COUPLES
Trybal events are great places to meet new people regardless if you’re flying solo, coming with a friend, or bringing your significant other. This is a casual environment to give your non-MOT friends and partners a taste of what Jewish community feels like. So bring them along.
who's it for?
Prepare to unwind for 4 carefree days and 3 cozy nights. We take care of meals, lodging, linens, activities, and programming. You bring the Trybal spirit, we’ll take care of the rest.
food & drink
All facilities are either kosher or kosher-style. We work with camp chefs to offer nutritious meals + snacks while camp is session. Alcohol is also included, which is served throughout the weekend.
Each day you’ll sign up for classic and creative activities that appeal to you. We offer dozens of options, customized to each location. Sports, arts 'n' crafts, color war, silent disco, pool time, and the alpine tower are just the tip of the iceberg. This is your weekend to customize the way you want. You do you.
Trybal events are socially Jewish environments. Being Jewish here means eating challah French toast, enjoying an informal Shabbat dinner, and saying l’chaim when we play flip cup. Or, expand your horizons with electives like Jews & Tattoos, Ashkenazi Mixology, and Jewish cooking workshops.
