Meet The Director
Thank you for considering Camp Moshava, a Bnei Akiva camp now celebrating almost 60 years of camping excellence. I know your children are your most prized possession and picking a camp is a serious decision. I would be honoured to have your child spend the summer with us to experience the summer of a lifetime.
I have been involved with Moshava for many summers in various positions; as a chanicha (camper), a madricha (counsellor), a Rosh Eidah (section head) and more recently, the director. My time at Moshava is amongst my best memories and I am so privileged to be back along with my family.
Sleep-away camp gives children an opportunity to become more independent and responsible, and our staff is there to guide them in a fun and caring manner. Many rules are set in place for the safety and security of your precious children. Along with providing a safe environment for your child, Camp Moshava will instil religious, Zionistic ideals through daily torah learning, davening and inspirational programming.
Our facilities include our newly expanded private beach on Buckhorn Lake with many water activities including water skiing, water tubing, banana boating and canoeing; a full sports field offering a range of popular sports as well as archery, the Log, the Swing and golfing. We also offer science, videography, dance, Red Cross swim instruction in our heated pool and a full range of activities in our beautiful 600-sq-ft indoor Recreation Centre. We also offer trips and overnights for all ages.
I believe that every summer should incorporate many new and exciting programs, so whether it is your first summer at Moshava or your 8th, you’ll never be bored.
Camp Moshava is proud to be a participant in the Foundation of Jewish Camp’s Cornerstone Fellowship Program. A number of our staff take part in this groundbreaking Jewish Leadership training seminar which enables camps to increase the Judaic effectiveness of their program. We are also proud members of the Ontarion Jewish Camp Council, OCA (ontario Camping Association, and the Grinspoon Foundation.
Our staff represent the values of Torah V’Avodah which the camp strives to transmit in everything we do. Come see for yourself what THOUSANDS have experienced for nearly 60 summers!
If you have any questions or concerns, I am here for you. Please do not hesitate to call or email me, as open communication is of utmost importance.
For general questions please email the office at firstname.lastname@example.org, for more personal inquiries, feel free to email me at email@example.com.

Meet The Assistant Director
Shalom Camp Moshava!
I am so excited to return to Ennismore this summer as the Assistant Director! Growing up in Thornhill, I have been part of Bnei Akiva since my early youth. As a Chanicha I attended weekly snif. As a Madricha and Rosh Snif I planned weekly activities. As a Mazkira I oversaw programming for Chanichim from grades 3-12.
Camp Moshava Ennismore is a very special place for both my husband and I. I was on Breicha staff and was Rosh Breicha at Moshava Ennismore. I also worked as a Rosh Eidah at Moshava Ba’ir Toronto and as a Rosh Breicha in Moshava California. My husband, Jeremy attended Moshava as a Chanich and later as a Plugah staff member.
I graduated from the Jewish Education program at York University in 2013. I have a special interest in informal Jewish Education which I believe is part of the Moshava Ennismore experience. I currently work as a Kindergarten teacher at Associated Hebrew Schools Posluns Campus and I am an active member of the BAYT community.
I am bringing to Ennismore this summer all of my past experiences and enthusiasm. I look forward to meeting you and your family over the next few months as we prepare for an incredible summer at Camp Moshava Ennismore!
Please feel free to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Meet Vince Robichaud
Question: Who Is Vince? A master carpenter? A great builder? A caretaker? Fix-it person? Schoolbus driver? A really cool guy?
Answer: All of the above!
Vince Robichaud is Moshava’s incredibly talented “Everything Guy” who keeps the camp in tip top shape all year round. Over the past years, Vince has built new bunks, an extension to the office, expanded kitchen facilities, Tzevet Bachir bunks (head staff). He has directed our Avodah campers to build a mirpa’ah, BetMidrash, Gazebo, and many more of our buildings. Vince is the “man” we can rely for anything that needs to be done on the physical site of camp.
