SPORTS & ADVENTURE

All campers have sports activities built into their weekly schedule and our older campers can sign up for additional sports leagues and sport periods through electives.

Our sports program is headed up by physical education teachers and coaches, and our low/high ropes and archery course specialists are fully trained and certified every year in all the elements.

SPECIALTY FRIDAY

Each Friday is Specialty Friday in camp where all activities throughout the day are inspired by the theme of the week. Campers look forward to a different surprise schedule each Friday!

TRIPS & ELECTIVES

Kids love choices! Starting in Kindergarten our campers are able to choose from a variety of Chugim. These choices give our campers the chance to participate in activities they really love or try something completely new. Campers keep these Chugim for 2 week periods (except a few which last longer). This gives them the chance to continuously try new ones or repeat those they really loved.

As our campers graduate from grade to grade and unit to unit we increase the amount of choice time they have. Kindergarten and First graders(Yeladim) choose 2 periods a week while our  Second and Third graders(Gadol) choose four. As campers move up to the Tzahov & Sababa Units, campers choose up to 6 periods each week.

Camp is about doing things that you don’t normally do at home.
Each child is sure to find a favorite on the list!
