About camp

The Pioneers program takes the Sternberg experience to the next level with life-changing programs for 8th and 9th grade girls. Founded by our own camping “pioneer,” Rabbi Ronnie Greenwald over 30 years ago, Camp Sternberg’s Pioneers program is the first and only successful large-scale frum girls’ pioneering program in America! Together with girls from all over America and the world, our girls enjoy tons of exciting and challenging pioneering activities which show the girls that they can accomplish anything they set their mind to do.
