Mach Hach 2017 / 5777

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.

Lovely summer  

My child had the best summer of her life!!|I think all the activities daily, especially the lake and the special programming on certain days for example Israel day.

Great place  

Just wanted to thank you again for a wonderful Shabbat– we had a great time.

We also wanted to say that the camp seems to be in a great place, the Rabbi is amazing and the atmosphere is great! All the changes made a big difference– Yishar Koach!

Good luck!

All the best,

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!
