HEAR IT FROM OUR PARENTS

  • “It's not every day a kid can come home and say he made kugel and did archery! And the Shabbat challah is an incredible touch. Just took ours out of the oven! And he said: I had kef at camp."

    Eden K.
  • "You guys have done an amazing job bringing the overnight camp experience to our kids. The “ruach” of your program comes through in everything you do – from the staff’s engagement with the campers, to the thoughtfully organized field trips, to the camp song.”

    Marissa R.
  • “As a half-Jewish, half-Catholic family... the exposure to Judaism was a perfect taste for our daughter… The breadth of activities, the encouragement of the counselors…, the field trips, and the overall sense of community is unparalleled.”

    Elizabeth E.
