Home » 50th Reunion: November 1 – 3, 2019

50 years of anything is always cause for a celebration. 50 years of a Jewish summer camp? In Mississippi? Well, let’s just say no one expected us to still be here. A few months ago, we were so thrilled to announce the dates for Jacobs Camp’s 50th reunion in the celebration capital of the world, New Orleans, Louisiana! We tried so hard to plan in advance, to read the tea leaves (and potential football schedules), to ensure our chosen date would not conflict with any major happenings in the Deep South.

As anyone who has ever worked at our magical camp can attest to, even with the most precise planning, things just happen.  When football schedules for Fall 2019 were released last month, it became clear the week of November 1 – 3 would be more suitable for our weekend reunion. We also found that venue availability in New Orleans proved more ideal during the first weekend of November to ensure we could create the most fun-filled weekend possible.

We understand this date change may be inconvenient, but we hope this announcement comes with enough time to plan your trip. If celebrating the magic of Jacobs Camp wasn’t enough reason to meet us in New Orleans, here are a few more reasons to come!

  • Reconnect with old friends
  • Moments of community to share with our Jacobs Family
  • See and hear what the Jacobs Magic looks like today!
  • Get a preview of what we are dreaming for the future
  • Plus all that the city of New Orleans has to offer

We also want to hear from you!  Let us know what you want for OUR REUNION!
