About Tel Noar

A Day in the Life of a
Tel Noar Camper

Daily and Shabbat schedule, along with evening activities and special events

Here’s what your schedule will look like most days – but there’s never an “ordinary” day at Camp Tel Noar.

Some days we take a field trip to a water park, participate with other camps in the annual Jewish Performing Arts Festival, or go wild for Maccabiah or Color War!

Every camper also gets to personalize their Tel Noar experience through LOTS of activities and electives.

While Jewish values infuse every day, Camp Tel Noar Shabbat is our most treasured tradition. Dress in blue and white and gather in the lakeside Pine Grove for a community celebration like no other.

Evening activities

As much fun as you’ll have during the day, you’ll look forward to evening activities, too. Every night, we plan something special: MTV Night, talent shows, Spirit Nights, game shows, campfires, the annual CIT Carnival, movies, performances by our campers in the Theater Arts and Dance programs, and so much more.

Special events and trips

Camp Tel Noar

Each summer, Camp Tel Noar has special all-camp events like Color War, and welcomes entertainers, too.

Sometimes we head out to fun off-site camp excursions like hikes, movies, water parks, roller skating, and trampoline parks. Older campers may also take a special overnight trip specifically designed for them.

On the water, in the studio, and on the field or courts, there’s always something new to try!
