A journey throughout New York City and neighboring cities are full of adventure and memorable experiences. Haverim travel program includes water parks, zoos, museums, outdoor adventure courses, rock climbing and lakefront activities.
Campers can choose from electives of their choice based on an area of their interest, which allow them to master a specific skill throughout the course of the summer. Volleyball, STEM, Musical Theater, Visual Arts, and Athletics specialty tracks are led by professional coaches, specialists, and facilitators.
Each Friday, campers enjoy a peer lead, exciting, and immersive Shabbat experience. A performance, a game, a spiritual journey – each week is different and is facilitated by our Madrich team. Our Israeli emissaries – schlichim– will visit each group and help bring a feeling of what it means to be a part of a global Jewish community to each camper.
Teens participate in community service projects throughout the summer, which help teach how to give back to our community and explore what it means to be a part of the Jewish community.
