Our fun continues the next morning with an additional swim! Breakfast the next morning is also provided, along with lunch on Friday. Campers return home the next day at the normal bus site and scheduled time.

Week Two
Group 30s Swinging Monkeys crashed into Week 2 full force passing and scoring in soccer, the spirit matched the FIFA games ! FIFA to MLL, Group 30 scooped up ground balls and assisted each other during lacrosse. And to top off the trifecta, all campers competed in a bouncy game of basketball! From sports to the outdoors, Group 30 peddled and paddled through a pond in boating for the first time. A great change of pace from team sports and the arts. And to end an ever campers went all out in Trivia and Color Chase, dipped in the pool for two extra periods of swim, and sang away at Shabbat.

“Actives” at Camp
Our beautiful campgrounds have over 50 acres of grass, courts, and fields to play on. With over 12 active activities, our campers are sure to get in the game!
