Camp Kinderwelt

Camp Kinderwelt was a youth summer camp of the New York chapter of the Farband labor Zionist landsmanschaft (mutual aid association). Located at Highland Mills, New York, Kinderwelt shared its 250 acres with the Farband adult summer colony Unser Camp. Kinderwelt, founded in the 1920s, remained in operation until 1971, with Unser closing the following year. Despite its Yiddish name, most of the children attending Kinderwelt spoke English, creating a linguistic divide with the Yiddish speaking adults at Unser. The year following the creation of the Young Poale Zion Alliance in 1931, Unser Camp played home to the YPZA's first Camp Kvutzah, which then moved to Accord, New York in 1933.
