Educational Programs

 At the Brandeis-Bardin Campus of American Jewish University, we offer a wide range of programs to fit the needs of your group. We will work with you to create a schedule appropriate to your educational goals. Our programs have been designed to promote social interaction between the group participants and to supplement the education that they receive at school in the environment, science, social studies and the arts. Language Arts activities can accompany any of these activities through the use of journaling and storytelling. All activities are developed with California state educational standards in mind.

Our specialized programming draws on the resources of AJU Brandeis-Bardin Campus , which has spent over 60 years crafting curricula for informal educational classes, events and retreats. With this expertise we can support the development of a customized agenda for your group.

Groups are welcome to enjoy the following activities: 

  • Recreation, including tennis, swimming, and basketball 
  • Horseback riding on our 3,000 acre property on trails 
  • Hiking trails offering easy to challenging experiences 
  • Camping in secluded, wooded outdoor areas 
  • Adventure course, including three ropes course. 
  • Arts and music, taught by experienced dance instructors.

In addition to recreation and the arts, we offer specialized programming, which includes outdoor environmental education led by a prominent outdoor experiential educator, team building and leadership development on our challenging adventure course, and spiritual retreats with yoga or meditation, and academic classes and workshops.
