Incredible summer experience  

My child learned to water ski on 1 ski (dropped and went around the whole lake).. cant wait to learn how to deep water start next summer… i hope the rosh agam jacob is coming back.. he was great too!!|the leadership (VIcky is a fantastic camp director and her camp experience is an asset to every parent staff and camper) and professionals that run each department…(such as nurse TK in the marp, or gilda at the pool, or shari as camp mom) they work tirelessly all for the effort of the camp.

Camp strengths  

Quality of counsellors, Jewish values, relationships between campers

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.

Family atmosphere  

A family environment where it’s cool to get involved in Jewish activities such as Shabbat singing, dancing...

Hey Eidah Gimmel!

My name is Yosef Sklar and i’ll be your Rosh Eidah this coming summer! I live in Bergenfield, New Jersey and am a presently studying at Yeshiva University. I previously spent four summers as a madrich at Moshava Indian Orchard (one of those “other” Moshavas) and i’m very excited to join you all at Ennismore this summer! You guys are gonna have to fill me in on all the Canada lingo- i’m a bit behind. As for the summer–I’m extremely excited for just about everything: night tochniot, sports, singing, malechet yad, you name it!

SO get pumped up and think of as many creative “Eidah Gimmel” cheers as you can!
