Campers enjoy a safe, structured and supervised environment, while having the opportunity to discover themselves, make a difference to the lives of others and realize their leadership potential. Choose a camp that offers over 90 years of experience in exceptional childcare and community building. Our staff is composed of highly qualified and experienced professionals and cabin counselors carefully selected, trained and supervised.shabbat3

Campers become part of a Jewish communal experience, where they gain a connection to Israel and our rich Jewish heritage in a fun and relaxed setting. We create an environment that celebrates Jewish identity and encourages our campers to be proud of being Jewish.

Shabbat is a special part of this process for both campers and staff where over the years, we created our own “Shabbat service” in the serene setting of our Home Away From Home. The service includes traditional and camp favorite songs all led by our song leaders and campers. The highlight of Shabbat are our guest presenters who bring to camp a wide range of subjects presented through a Jewish lens. These might include the global community, health and well-being, charity, Israel advocacy and social justice. This exposure allows campers to learn about the world they live in and discover what they value as being important to them.

To complement our Shabbat experience, we run a variety of special and evening programs themed around Jewish values and culture, celebrating our heritage and identity. This, coupled with our strong connection to Israel fostered by our Israeli campers and staff, enhances the overall Jewish experience for our campers.

The heart and soul of camp is the feeling of family and togetherness that the bunk experience provides. Living in a group during the summer is something that cannot be compared to any other experience that children can have.
