  • Special events each week – Dress up days, theme days and weeks, camp-wide Shabbat Friday activities, Maccabi Games and favorite summertime activities like slip n’ sliding, water balloons and shaving cream.

  • Instructional Swim – Individualized small group instruction provided by American Red Cross trained swim instructors.
  • Specialties – Each week every camper will experience a wide variety of activities in Judaics, Science, Zumba, Sports, Nature, Art, and Music.

  • Snack – Nutritious, Kosher and  healthy snacks to satisfy any morning or afternoon hunger.
  • Closing – One last chance to send off campers, through song and cheer while showing their spirit and approval of the day. Campers and parents are presented with any information (handouts/notes) they need for the following camp day.
