Zionism  

The camp is very zionist and had many counsellors and campers from Israel. It created a very strong sense of oneness

The camp is run very well, and for us reinforces the modern orthodox zionistic upbringing given at home.

Thank you  

Elianna’s experience at camp this summer went beyond any expectations I had at the start of the summer. It is amazing how in just 4 weeks of camp she has grown so much in her appreciation of Shabbat, knowledge of Jewish “Heros” as well as a feeling of independence.

When talking to her about life at camp, Elianna turned to me and said that she thinks Camp has made her feel prouder to be a Jew. When I asked her what her favorite activity was at camp, she responded to my surprise, Chinuch. She even wants to buy a siddur (just like the ones at camp, because it seems everything is the best at camp). She of course loved the other activities like Horseback Riding, Teva, Arts and Crafts, the Swing, Swimming and of course Shekem. For the last month any time we went anywhere or did anything it was always the pool was much better at camp, the pizza was the best there …

She loved her Counselors and I was impressed with them as well when I met them on visiting day. I could clearly see the kesher that they had with my daughter. She referred to Keshet as her substitute Mom at camp.

I found the communication from the camp to be excellent, from the email alerts regarding bad weather to the first Friday call from her Rosh Eidah reassuring me that she was having a blast at camp as well as scouring the many pictures for a glimpse of my daughters smile and what the campers were up to, the videos were great as well.

Thank you for providing Elianna with such a great summer full of wonderful memories. She keeps telling her sister how great camp is and now her sister wants to go to camp too. She is looking forward to another great summer next year, b”h.

Wishing you a Shana Tova

Rosh Eidah Aleph

Hello to all of you Eidah Aleffers out there! My name is Avital Fortinsky and I’m so excited to be your Rosh Eidah this summer! I live in Ra’anana, Israel and I’m currently learning Torah in Midreshet Nishmat in Yerushalayim. I spent 2 amazing years in Sherut Leumi including a year in Hebrew Academy in Montreal! This is going to be my fourth summer at camp. In previous years I was a speciallist, madricha, sgan and now I can’t wait to be Rosh Eidah and have the BEST summer ever! I can’t wait for all of the night tochniot, the agam, megamot and overnights! But really, my favorite part in camp is cheering and dancing in the Chadar!

I can’t wait to meet you all in person but in the meantime I’d love to hear from you all by email at avital.fortinsky@gmail.com.
