Warm and welcoming  

I think that it is an extremely warm and welcoming camp. The Jewish content fits our family perfectly.

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.

Friendship  

The strength of Moshava is the friendship, the love you feel when you get to visiting day, the kids are happy, my boys could be at moshava waiting for other campers by the mid of January, with 3 feet of snow, they are happy it’s like the best place in earth.

Rosh Eidah Bet 1

Shalom Eidah Bet 1!!! I’m Daniel Safran (a.k.a. TinTin, Safronius, That Chinuch Guy), and I can’t wait to meet you all this summer as your Rosh Eidah! As we count down the days until I greet you in camp, I’ll tell you a bit about me: Bnei Akiva and Camp Moshava have helped make me who I am today, as a chanich (camper) to madrich (counselor), to sgan rosh eidah and then 2 years on the Chinuch crew at Moshava!

When I’m not studying Torah, hanging out with friends, learning Graphic Communications at Ryerson University, searching my house for mint chocolate chip ice cream or practicing my frisbee throw, I am probably adding things to my list of Amazing Things to Do This Summer at Camp (it’s a reeeeaaallly long list, and includes trips, overnights, and big surprises)!!! That’s my job as Rosh Eidah: to do what my best to make this summer the best, most amazing, super summer yet for all of us– from mifkad until layla tov (following a great night tochnit)! So what are you waiting for? Get EXCITED for what I BET will be the most amazing summer ever at Moshava Ennismore!!!
