A Jewish Day Camp with an Overnight Feel
Little and Junior Shoresh: For our youngest campers ages 4 – 6
These precious campers enjoy a full range of Shoresh activities including sports, nature, swimming and crafts. Jewish themes are incorporated throughout the day. We take special care to pair our little and junior campers with exceptionally caring, enthusiastic and creative counselors. Our bunks are arranged to maintain small camper to counselor ratios so that each camper has maximum individual attention. This program also includes visiting guest entertainers and one off-site trip per session. As with all of the Shoresh programs, safety is always our primary concern.
Shoresh: For campers entering 2nd – 8th grades
The Shoresh division (nicknamed “the big camp”) is unlike any camp in the area. Our goal is to instill a love of Judaism within each camper while maximizing the fun and amazing activities. The counselors in this program are exceptional because they are not only spirited and enthusiastic, but their depth of knowledge and their strength of character make them excellent role models for the campers. A typical camp day is packed with an array of activities including sports, crafts, challenge courses (high and low), archery, game room and swimming. Shoresh campers will have the opportunity to attend amusement park trips and an overnight complete with a bonfire, and two weekend retreats during camp. Additionally, they will meet and interact with professional athletes brought to enhance our programming.
Counselors In Training: For campers entering 9th and 10th grades
C.I.T.s gain skills and knowledge that prepare them to be Shoresh counselors or to be employed in other summer opportunities. In addition, they continue to enjoy all of their favorite bunk activities such as sports, swimming, crafts, challenge courses and archery. Exclusive C.I.T. trips and activities will make this program an unforgettable and invaluable experience. Our C.I.T.s even enjoy their own hangout called “the Diner”.
Counselors-In-Training work with Shoresh campers and staff, develop leadership abilities, participate in special interactive learning sessions from Rabbis and experts in various disciplines, and max out on fun with awesome trips!
There is a full time nurse on staff to attend to all medical issues and allergies.
