Summer 2024

First-Time Campers

Ready? Set? Camp!

Welcome to your first summer at Camp Tel Noar!

Everyone has a first summer here, so we know some of what you’re feeling: excitement and maybe a little nervousness. But don’t worry: you’ll feel you are a part of the warm Tel Noar family right away! 

We start each session with lots of games, both as a whole camp and as a bunk. Campers all have lots of new friends by dinnertime the first day. Plus, at meals we’ll assign each camper to a table with kids of all ages, so everyone will get to know each other together. You’ll also get to know the other bunks in your cabin. Our unique cabins hold three bunks and a common room, so that you can easily make and hang out with lots of new friends.

We recommend that even first-time campers sign up for a regular session. But if you–or your parents–want to dip a toe in more gently, please check out the 2-week mini-session for younger first-time campers, called Ta’am (Taste) of Tel Noar.

First-Timer Welcome Grants

Every first-time camper receives an automatic Welcome Grant of $250 off each regular session. You may also qualify for an additional grant through the OneHappyCamper program. Explore our Tuition Resources, including Cohen Camps financial assistance.

Ta'am (Taste) of Tel Noar

Monday, July 22 - Sunday, August 4, 2024

We recommend that even first-time campers sign up for a regular session. But sometimes campers–or parents–want to dip a toe in more gently, so we also offer a 2-week Ta’am (Taste) of Tel Noar for younger first-time campers. It’s the perfect way for new campers to ease into the overnight camp experience.

Ta’am campers are fully immersed in regular camp programming. Your child will sample all the fun activities of camp, with a daily schedule full of arts, sports, swimming, boating, and more, plus special events and evening activities, topped off by the warm Camp Tel Noar Shabbat experience.

Best of all, Ta’am campers will live in their very own bunk. Dedicated counselors who are skilled with this age group will help your child make friends, try new and favorite activities, and become part of the Tel Noar family. 

The Ta’am experience is available to new campers entering 2nd, 3rd, or 4th grade in the September after camp. Each camper may enroll in Ta’am only for one summer. The CTN leadership team would be delighted to answer any questions you may have: please contact us at or call 781.489.2070 and ask for Aaron, Camp Director.
