Camp offers a unique kind of Jewish atmosphere, the key component of which is Shabbat. Each Friday evening, everyone dresses in his or her
Shabbat whites in preparation of this special time. Shabbat offers campers and staff an opportunity to share in the traditions that have joined us together for many centuries.
From the traditional meal, complete with prayers and song, to camper-led services, and a camp-wide Israeli dancing session, ruach (spirit) is evident throughout camp. All of this offers
our camp populations a new awareness of who we are and the traditions we celebrate.
The Shabbat program is created to be different from the rest of the week. There are no activities taught but instead a thematic mass-camp
program is created whose goal is fun and offers some Judaic components. The evening will conclude with a special Havdallah service.
During the week, camp enjoys continual Judaic involvement in the camp program from singing and dancing to specific arts projects such as ceramic
menorahs and Havdallah candles. The food at camp is kosher and prayers are said before and after each meal.
