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.

A summer to remember  

Vicky

I just wanted to send you a quick email thanking you and the staff of camp moshava. My daughter came home after her first summer at sleep away camp and I don’t know if her experience could have been any better. She was beyond excited to tell and show us everything about camp. When we asked her if she wants to go back next year her answer was 1000 percent . She showed us her sidder and played the yala habbi and other songs.

Thanks again for making it a summer she will remember

All the best

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for giving our son Omri the opportunity to join Avoda.

It was a marvelous experience for him and his friends. You and all the staff did a super job. We enjoyed looking daily at the pictures you shared with us and the videos gave us a true sense of the great Ruach in camp Moshava Ennismore.
