Eidah Bet One 2014 / 5774

Smiles everywhere  

Hi Vicky,

The boys arrived home with half a smile. They left half of it in camp! They are happy to be home but had such an incredible summer. In fact they are so sure that they are coming back next year that one of them came home with an entirely empty duffle bag!

Please make sure you thank the appropriate staff for making their first camp experience such a success. I was watching the camp pics with a very critical eye. Your programming looked great. The activities seemed engaging and the kids were all happy.

Enjoy the last two weeks of camp. I know the boys wish they were still there

A big mitzvah  

Noam was in a particular situation, suffering from a critical illness. Yet Camp Moshava did everything in their power to allow him to experience some camp this summer, even though it was impossible for him to attend the entire session. They patiently followed all the doctor’s guidelines and never made him feel like they were doing him a favour. They showed only happiness in the fact that he could spend even a few weeks, and the staff did everything in their power to allow him to participate in those activities he favoured in particular. They were also incredibly generous in making it possible for us to send Noam’s little sister Adina for the full camp session. They showed us so much support through a difficult time and made us feel like part of the family. This is what they do. They go out of their way to make every member feel included, no matter the circumstance. That’s beside the fact that the activities, staff and facilities are top notch.|Camp Moshava really stresses that every member is part of a large family and it is not just a cliché. They really prove it through their actions. In our experience, we have truly felt the individual attention to each of our children, and that the counsellors, staff, bunkmates, and other kids really care for them. A major strength is also the joy that transpires in how the camp as a whole lives Judaism in such a positive way. The ruach is so strong and in turn strengthens the kids’ feelings toward their faith and their love of Israel.

Memorable experience  

It has been a very fulfilling and memorable experience for them in may ways. Camp is like a big family. My kids were very well taken care of when needing medical attention, which is very important when they are away from their parents. The nurse and camp director stepped in and made sure they felt nurtured and safe until well enough to return to their activities. They got a chance to disconnect from their everyday life, forge strong friendships, and be exposed to certain activities that they cannot do during the year at home and while at school (water sports, horseback riding, archery, for example). Very important as well, it deepened their pride in their Judaism and community through learning, song, dance and just plain cheerfulness!|The staff work very hard to make sure to offer a wide range of activities to please kids with many different interests. All campers feel included in a spirit of warmth and joy, and most importantly, the staff works to ensure that all campers plainly have fun. It is the kids’ happiest time of the year!!

Rosh Eidah Bet 1

Hi everyone! I am so excited be Rosh Eidah Bet One this year!! Let me tell you a little about myself—my name is Zev Wasserman, I’m 19 years old, I’m currently at the Schulich School of Business and I’m 6’4. That last fact is, of course, the most important. This coming summer will be my seventh summer at camp, and I’m pumped that I’m going to be spending it with all of you! Moshava’s always been important to me—I loved working as a counselor for 3 years, and then last year as a sgan. I’ve always had an amazing time at camp, and I know this year will be no exception. Bet One’s really where it’s at—I can’t wait for a summer full of overnights, academies, rocking night tochniot and fantastic trips! If anyone has any suggestions or comments or questions or just want to chill, please get in touch! My email is zzwass@hotmail.com. I know we’re going to have an amazing time this summer—start getting excited!!
