So well run  

Quality of activities far surpasses other popular overnight camp for Ottawa Jewish kids and we absolutely loved how hands on the staff were in caring for the younger kids. We felt no concern that anyone would be ostracized or bullied. The set up seemed to really encourage staff engagement with kids to ensure that everyone was included and having fun at all times. Moshava also does a beautiful job of encouraging kids of different ages of developing friendships, which we loved. And we loved that the kids feel a deep connection with Israel through the Israeli staff. We also think you did a superb job of communicating with parents and of allowing us to feel very much part of the experience with daily pictures, videos, etc. Compared to the experience that our friends had sending their kids to camp for the very first time, Moshava far surpassed them all. We heard stories of children not showering or changing their clothes, others of kids being very sunburned, complaining of bullying, etc. And there never seemed to be a real confidence that the camp staff was dealing with those issues. We felt no such concern with Moshava. We were very confident that our child was very well cared for.

Wonderful opportunity  

It’s a wonderful opportunity for children to feel a part of Am Yisrael and we value the influence of Camp Moshava on our children’s Jewish Identity. Developing a broader sense of community & sense of belonging

Rosh Mach Hach

Hey Mach Hach,

It’s crazy for me to think that this is my 13th summer at Camp Moshava Ennismore! I’ve been here all the way since nitzanim, I’ve been a camper in Mach Hach, tzevet in Mach Hach twice and a Rosh Eidah, but wow being Rosh Mach Hach is going to be completely new and exciting. I am now finishing my second year studying computer science at York University, which I began after two years at Yeshivat Har Etzion in Israel. The thought that the summer is approaching is very exciting and I’m already thinking of ways for our summer to be the amazing. We are planning an unbelievable experience for everyone, if you’ve been to camp since the beginning or are a first timer. This is the summer that you get to experience camp as a member of Mach Hach! What makes Mach Hach special? There’s obviously white water rafting and my personal favourite the 3 day canoe trip, but there’s way more. Getting the chance to be older chanichim in camp and having the opportunity for awesome leadership experiences by leading colour war. We are going to have non-stop fun always coming up with new ideas and schtick for the Eidah. We are going to start a Mach Hach 2015 Facebook group soon, so we can get started on camp already. I can’t wait for the summer!

Looking forward to a great summer,
