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.

Visiting day experience  

Hi Vicky,

We had a great time visiting Eitan today at camp Moshava.

He looks great and is having a fabulous time in camp and making new friends. He was so proud to show us his bunk and the camp facilities, and introduce us to his counselors and friends.

We are happy to extend his stay to the full 6 weeks.

We are confident that the Eitan we all know and love will come home with strong Jewish values and with lots of camp Moshava spirit!

A “hakarat hatov” to you, your staff, and I hope they know what this camp experience has so far meant to Eitan.

Please convey our gratitude, appreciation, and thanks to eitan’s counselors, division head, specialists, and Rosh mosh.

You are doing an amazing job!

Have a great rest of your summer.

Thank you!
