Camp Shoshanah is a Conference, Retreat and Bible Study facility for believers in Jesus the Messiah, located on over 400 acres in the scenic Adirondack Mountains of northern New York State. We are part of Ariel Ministries.  Ariel is a Messianic Jewish outreach ministry, sharing the Good News of Messiah Jesus with the Jewish people and with all who will hear, discipling those who come to faith and training believers.
Each summer since 1973 we have conducted a 3 week intensive Messianic Bible Institute Discipleship Program, taught by our director Dr. Arnold Fruchtenbaum and other skilled Bible Teachers. Over the years many Jewish believers & leaders in the Messianic Movement have taught here including Dr. Louis Goldberg, Barney Kasdan, Dr. Michael Rydelnik,
Steven Ger, Sam Nadler, Dr. Mitch Glaser, Dr. Barry Leventhal,
Robert Morris, Mottel Baleston, Dr. Greg Hagg, J. Isaac Gabizon, Gary Derechinsky, Louis Lapides, Jeff Gutterman, Michael Gabizon and several others. 

The daily schedule includes 3 hours of classes in the morning, 2 hours in the evening, with the afternoon free for recreation. You may attend Camp for one, two, or all three weeks. The entire set of courses we offer is fully covered during a cycle of five summers. You may begin at any time. A certificate is given to those completing the 5 year cycle with a minimum 2 weeks each summer. The following courses are offered during each 5 year class cycle:

In addition, each year Dr. Fruchtenbaum teaches his well known course: "The Life of the Messiah from a Jewish Perspective", which gives students a comprehensive  understanding of the Jewishness of Messiah Jesus and the Jewish roots of faith in Jesus. Many thousands of believers, both Jewish and Gentile, as well as scores of Leaders in the Messianic Movement have taken & benefited from this course.

As families often attend together, separate Teen and Children's programs run during the same time as the adult classes during most weeks of the program. Check the full Shoshanah download and call the Camp directly to check the specific week your family is thinking about attending. In addition to the classic 3 week school, more recently a 2 week program has been offered during the second & third weeks of July, offering a different line-up of classes as well as a 4 class daily schedule, compared to the 5 classes during the 3 week program.

Each of the Bible Study classes begins with Messianic Jewish praise music with lyrics in Hebrew and English. Praise & Israeli Folk dancing is regularly enjoyed, and a snack shop satisfies your desire for a nosh. Each week of the Bible Study Camp ends with a traditional and festive Jewish Shabbat Dinner. The Camp is located on a lake in a scenic valley in the Adirondack Mountains of New York State with recreation nearby. Housing includes rustic family cabins and modern dorms, with RV 'hook-ups' available.
