Affiliated with the Sholem Aleichem Folk Institute, after Sholom Aleichem, Boiberik was a secular, apolitical institution which emphasized Yiddishkeit, or Eastern European Ashkenazi Jewish folk culture, including songs, dance, food in the tradition of the Borscht belt, theater, and humor. Although non-religious, Boiberik observed shabbos and kept a kosher kitchen.
Boiberik had interactions with and was somewhat similar to Camp Kinder Ring.
