About Tevya

Activities + Electives

Lots to love, and lots of choice

What makes a summer at Camp Tevya so exciting?
Fun and adventures every day!

Swim and paddle in the lake, play sports and get fit in our athletic facilities, and explore and create in our visual and performing arts. Our campers engage in a variety of fun activities as they learn new skills and build on skills they already have.

A balanced program

Every camper’s daily schedule includes swimming, boating, outdoor learning, athletics, and arts + crafts, plus shira (singing) and rikud (Israeli dancing). Campers may also try out for inter-camp sports teams. Evening activities and special events round out every week. Campers do most of these activities with their cabin or age group, and some as a whole camp community.
