Most beautiful experience  

On Visiting Day we spent just two hours in the camp briefly talking to staff members. I was surprised with warmth, care and closeness that counselors and senior staff members have with children. They managed to make us feel at home for this short time. I was touched by Rabbi Cutler’s message about the time my daughter spends learning and davening. Please send my words of gratitude to everybody.

My daughter talks about camp as the most beautiful experience she has ever had.

Thank you!

Very impressing  

We were very impressed with the nursing staff this summer as well as past summers. They worked very hard and communicated well with us and my child’s doctor in the city. I felt very comfortable that my child was in good hands.|The children feel like they’re part of a strong Jewish orthodox, zionist community with very good staff that they look to as role models

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.

Amazing Experience  

Thank you to all the staff at Camp Moshava and a huge Todah Rabbah to Vicky for making this summer such a wonderful summer for our children. We hope that our children can continue to attend Moshava in upcoming years.|Incorporating an overnight camp experience in a modern Jewish Orthodox Dati Tzioni setting along with a very safe and fun environment.
