A big mitzvah  

Noam was in a particular situation, suffering from a critical illness. Yet Camp Moshava did everything in their power to allow him to experience some camp this summer, even though it was impossible for him to attend the entire session. They patiently followed all the doctor’s guidelines and never made him feel like they were doing him a favour. They showed only happiness in the fact that he could spend even a few weeks, and the staff did everything in their power to allow him to participate in those activities he favoured in particular. They were also incredibly generous in making it possible for us to send Noam’s little sister Adina for the full camp session. They showed us so much support through a difficult time and made us feel like part of the family. This is what they do. They go out of their way to make every member feel included, no matter the circumstance. That’s beside the fact that the activities, staff and facilities are top notch.|Camp Moshava really stresses that every member is part of a large family and it is not just a cliché. They really prove it through their actions. In our experience, we have truly felt the individual attention to each of our children, and that the counsellors, staff, bunkmates, and other kids really care for them. A major strength is also the joy that transpires in how the camp as a whole lives Judaism in such a positive way. The ruach is so strong and in turn strengthens the kids’ feelings toward their faith and their love of Israel.

Terrific time, friends, atmosphere  

Dear Vicky,

Thank you for a wonderful summer! My younger girls had a great time and came home with a new sense of independence and confidence that was born to them at camp.

My other daughter comes home tomorrow and hopefully she will be able to embrace what she’s learned and taken from camp and let it carry her throughout her school year in public high school. She’s made terrific friends, from what I can see (your lovely daughter included!) And I’m so grateful for all these girls bringing her into their social circle, she needed that so much.

Anyway, camp Moshava was worth every penny and we look forward to shipping the whole lot of girls back to you again next year!

Thanks again!! Hope we’ll all be in touch throughout the year!

Mazel tov! It’s been a great summer!

Learn through playing  

Moshava’s strengths is making the kids feel that Camp is their summer home. Having the kids learn while they don't realize it.

Lots of pluses  

Moshava’s major strength is the Modern orthodox environment, Shabbos observance, Judaism in a fun environment, tefillah, ruach—life lines for Jewish kids in today's environment
