Each level includes training in basic water safety, and all aquatic and safety skills are taught in a logical progression.
Children express themselves through art, music, and theater. Under the caring guidance of professional specialists children use the nature around them for artistic inspiration and variety of materials.
Yoga – a mix yoga, creative art, mindfulness, and a whole lot of fun all together. An engaging and fulfilling experience for kids that helps regulate our bodies and feelings.

Our program integrates unique aspects of our shared heritage and Israeli culture into camp life through an immersive, experiential curriculum. Israeli emissaries, schlichim who join us at camp bring Israeli life, culture, and Hebrew language to all campers. Campers experience weekly activities, Friday Shabbat celebrations, and special events.
