Activities and Special Events
We make sure there’s something new and special every week. Sometimes that’s a guest performance or it might be a giant inflatable castle.
All of our campers get to participate in an American Red Cross based swim lesson daily. All campers are tested and placed in an appropriate swim group based on their skill level. Our lessons are taught by WSI certified lifeguards and supported by our camp counselors, ensuring growth and development in swim skills. We have two large pools to allow for plenty of space for our swim groups to separate and cater to every group’s needs.
All of our campers have a period each day where they have free swim! It’s a great open free play time! Our lifeguards closely supervise swim areas while our camp counselors play with our campers in the water ensuring low adult to camper ratios and close monitoring of all swimmers. Campers will stay in shallow water, unless they have demonstrated a specific set of skills proving they can swim in deeper swim areas.
Creative and Performing Arts
Our campers have the opportunity to explore both performing and creative arts through a wide variety of arts activities. From drama, yoga, dance and movement to traditional camp crafts, the opportunities for creative development are infused with nature and exploration of our incredible campus. Arts activities are led by specialists with specific training and expertise in their area and supported by our camp counselors.
Our campers engage in a variety of sports activities from soccer, to basketball, volleyball, gaga and beyond. Our equipment and instructions are tailored for each age group. Experienced coaches and specialists lead these activity periods with support from our camp counselors to create an inclusive activity period for all campers involved.

Suring Israel Saba Time campers get the opportunity to taste food from Israel, learn Hebrew songs and words, Israeli dance and learn about the Jewish people around the world.

Our older campers get the opportunity to pick an elective from the wide range of activities that we offer. During this period, campers will participate in the same activity for the entire week. This gives them the chance to pursue a specific hobby that they enjoy. We have many options including creative arts (ceramics, painting or general arts) and performing arts (drama, dance, and singing), adventure (ropes, archery), nature (hiking, fishing), Making a Difference Club (Campers make packages to send to those in need).
