A WEEK AT KID CAMP

MONDAYS, TUESDAYS, & THURSDAYS

These three in-camp days begin with a spirited all-camp shira (song session) followed by bunk meetings during which campers develop valuable social-emotional skills as they get to know one another, establish a culture of respect when they make “bunk rules”, and learn the plan for the day.

Campers spend the rest of the day participating in activities they choose themselves! Each hour, campers select from choices including basketball, arts & crafts, magic, nature, swimming, science, or dance. Campers experience their activity choices with other boys and girls who share their interests or curiosities.

The result: Campers who choose what they want to do are happy campers. Happy campers learn, grow, make friends, and love camp.

WEDNESDAYS

It’s Field Trip Day! Campers travel to an exciting Atlanta destination each week. We may hike Stone Mountain, go roller skating, tube down the Chattahoochee River, climb and jump at Slingshot, or explore a nature preserve. Every week brings a new adventure and a new opportunity for campers to grow, learn, and connect with their Jewish friends through this unique shared experience.

FRIDAYS

It’s Shabbat! Shabbat is a special day we spend as a camp community. We may do a service project; celebrate Israel through cooking, dancing, and art; surprise campers with Color War, or race through a ninja obstacle course like an Israeli soldier.

Our special Shabbat program continues with a camper talent show, The Shabbat Show! Then we recognize campers with awards, sing songs, eat challah, and enjoy a slideshow of photos from the week. Each Kid Camper leaves camp on Friday with a challah to bake at home and countless stories to share at the Shabbat table.
