About Camp Shoshanah

Ariel Ministries USA is a Jewish ministry dedicated to sharing the gospel with Jewish people and to disciple both Jew and Gentile believers through an intensive study of the Scriptures from the Jewish frame of reference in its original context.

Every summer for the past 45 years, Ariel Ministries has welcomed students of all ages from many countries to join them for their Messianic discipleship programme held at Camp Shoshanah. It is nestled in the beautiful Adirondack Mountains of upstate New York and provides the perfect setting for six-weeks of rich Bible study, fellowship and fun. Their programme centres on the grounding and growth of believers through an in-depth study of the Scriptures from a Jewish perspective. The time of Bible study combined with worship, fellowship, and beautiful surroundings, makes Camp Shoshanah’s summer programme the perfect retreat for refreshment, renewal and growth of one’s faith.


Throughout the years, our Messianic Jewish Studies Program has been growing. We now offer a six-week program teaching various Bible topics and courses from a Messianic Jewish Perspective. There is a two-week curriculum followed by a three-week curriculum, followed by a one week course on the Life of Messiah from a Jewish Perspective.

You may attend for one to six weeks depending on your schedule. Students are encouraged to attend all six weeks of the program if their schedule allows.

Program Breakdown

The Program Breakdown

Classes begin on Monday morning and end on Friday evening. During the first two weeks, the program will run four hours per day. During the remaining four weeks, the program will run five hours per day. The structure of the program will include four classes, each an hour long per day for both two and three-week programs. The three-week program has a required fifth session for first-time attendees: The Survey of the Life of Messiah, which runs for 75 minutes each day. The six-week program will also run for five hours a day giving a complete detailed study of Messiah’s life.

A youth program is provided during the adult sessions. We have designed our schedule for the maximum teaching time during the day while allowing ample time for fun and fellowship. The afternoons and weekends allow plenty of free time for worship, fellowship, hiking and recreation at Trout Pond, as well as various other activities located nearby.

Each Friday evening we have a special Shabbat service and dinner. Saturday is a free day for campers who will continue their study and a departure day for those who are leaving. On Sunday mornings, we gather for a time of worship led by Ariel staff members and students. If you play a musical instrument, please bring it along to share with us. Saturday and Sunday evenings are reserved for lakeside cookouts with music, dance, and fellowship.


Serious Bible education is required for our youth. While opportunities for good fun abound, first and foremost the Shoshanah facility is a Discipleship Program. During adult classes, we will conduct Bible teaching and a recreation program for children ages. Topics will mirror the adult program topics.


Accommodations include cabins for married couples and families; separate bunkhouses for single men and single women, and campgrounds (tent, camper, or RV). All accommodations are available on a first-come, first served basis, giving early registrants preference regarding dates of attendance.

Meals include breakfast, lunch and dinner. Please plan to arrive after 2 pm on Saturday. The first meal for new arrivals will be the evening cookout. Please Note: Attendees are not permitted to prepare their own meals nor is food allowed in the cabins, nor use the kitchen facilities for any purpose.
