A Typical Day

Camp begins between 8:45 AM and 9:00 AM.  Staff and campers gather together to sing, dance, and catch up with one another.  When all of the buses have rolled into camp, we begin the day with our mifkad (assembly). We love hearing about the day’s line-up and singing our camp song together!

Campers go with their group and counselors to each of their daily activities.  The morning typically consists of instructional swim and three other group activities and a camp provided snack.

Our entire camp gathers together at our picnic area for lunch.  Campers bring their own lunch Monday-Thursday’s that we refrigerate.  Lunch is a special time for our whole camp community to be together.  After we’ve finished eating, we hear daily announcements, sing and cheer together, and are often entertained for a few extra minutes with a performance learned during drama or camper jokes!

Our camp groups have different activities after lunch depending on their grade level.  Our youngest campers (pre-k and kindergarteners) go back to their air-conditioned bunk houses for rest and quiet play time.  Our first and second graders have group time—they play games together, play in the sandbox, or at the playground.  The third through sixth graders at camp have choice time.  They choose an elective activity at the beginning of the week and enjoy it for the entire week during choice time.

In the afternoon, camp groups typically have free swim and two other activities.  At the end of the day, we pack up and gather together one last time before heading home.  Our buses leave camp at 3:45 PM and car pick-ups enter camp to pick up once the last bus rolls out.
