Our Core Program

Our three and four week sessions allow campers to build lifelong friendships, cultivate meaningful Jewish experiences, develop a sense of community, and instill a passion for the outdoors.

Our shorter (A/B) sessions are designed for our younger campers who want a taste of our magical home for the first time, or for families who need additional flexibility in their summer schedule.
