A balanced program

Every camper’s daily schedule includes swimming, boating, nature, athletics, and arts + crafts, plus shira (singing) and rikud (Israeli dancing). You can also try out for inter-camp sports teams. Evening activities and special events round out every week. You’ll do most of these activities with your cabin or age group, and some as a special way to bond with your very own Big Sister.

More electives as you grow
