‘Maccabim’ campers represent heroes from the story of Chanukah.  Maccabim campers enjoy the full camp experience – but we still make sure they rest, snack and socialize! These campers begin their day singing at the flagpole with the whole camp, making projects to take home, swimming twice a day (instructional and free swim), rock climbing, learning pre-reading skills and playing games. Our counselors give campers individualized attention that they need to succeed in their new camp environment. Campers must be toilet trained and finished with their naps prior to camp.

1st Grade & 2nd Grade

‘Chaverim’ means friends and these campers develop lifelong friendships and build confidence while they enjoy new camp activities.  From our ‘Be An UpStander’ program, to the ropes course. Theme days and a late night treat, these campers sing, dance and play the day away. From visits from the Zoo or the balloon maker, so getting their hands dirty with STEMFusion, Chaverim campers build bonds and helps our campers discover a greater sense of self in our melting pot of a summer camp.

3rd Grade to 5th Grade

Tsophim means “lookout,” – and lookout because Tsophim is different in 2020!  Tsophim campers have their very own village in the Katz pavilion out in the woods, where they play, develop friendships and build communicative confidence. Campers hone decision making skills with chugim (electives) where they design their afternoon based around their interests.  Our traditional camp combines all of the elements of great education and entertainment – sports, the arts, STEM, music & dance and the best collection of silly camp games around!

Club 678 has been rebuilt and renamed Bonim (builders) to highlight the confidence, friendship and sense of community they will build!  Our Bonim counselors and campers work together to chart their meaningful camp experience that focuses on confidence, leadership, team building and community service – but they’ll also have a blast on the ropes course and during field trips! These middle school campers will plan and participate in community outreach and service. **Choose ‘Sports’ or ‘General’ Tracks!

3rd Grade to 8th Grade
