Wonderful opportunity  

It’s a wonderful opportunity for children to feel a part of Am Yisrael and we value the influence of Camp Moshava on our children’s Jewish Identity. Developing a broader sense of community & sense of belonging

100% ruach  

Moshava’s major strength is Ruach 100% and inclusion, all children feel welcomed, cared for and special.

Time of her life  

Abie sounds like he had the greatest time of his life! He is in the best mood and can’t stop talking about camp. It’s the sweetest thing… He wants to teach us all the songs and dances he learned… He already davened mincha before going to bed… And bought us his favourite shekem snack at IGA. We feel like sending him to camp was money very very well spent!

Oh… And I asked him if Vicky is a good camp director, and he said “Great!”

When I asked him if kids are scared of you, he looked at me like I was crazy and he said “no, she is so nice!!”

Thanks for taking such great care of our little man!

Lots of love

Thank you  

Elianna’s experience at camp this summer went beyond any expectations I had at the start of the summer. It is amazing how in just 4 weeks of camp she has grown so much in her appreciation of Shabbat, knowledge of Jewish “Heros” as well as a feeling of independence.

When talking to her about life at camp, Elianna turned to me and said that she thinks Camp has made her feel prouder to be a Jew. When I asked her what her favorite activity was at camp, she responded to my surprise, Chinuch. She even wants to buy a siddur (just like the ones at camp, because it seems everything is the best at camp). She of course loved the other activities like Horseback Riding, Teva, Arts and Crafts, the Swing, Swimming and of course Shekem. For the last month any time we went anywhere or did anything it was always the pool was much better at camp, the pizza was the best there …

She loved her Counselors and I was impressed with them as well when I met them on visiting day. I could clearly see the kesher that they had with my daughter. She referred to Keshet as her substitute Mom at camp.

I found the communication from the camp to be excellent, from the email alerts regarding bad weather to the first Friday call from her Rosh Eidah reassuring me that she was having a blast at camp as well as scouring the many pictures for a glimpse of my daughters smile and what the campers were up to, the videos were great as well.

Thank you for providing Elianna with such a great summer full of wonderful memories. She keeps telling her sister how great camp is and now her sister wants to go to camp too. She is looking forward to another great summer next year, b”h.

Wishing you a Shana Tova

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.

Thank you  

Hi Vicky,

Thank you so much for giving our kids an incredible summer. We always knew they would have a blast, but we were concerned about their yiddishkeit. Would it be nurtured and would their love of everything Jewish shine through? It was not only nurtured, but encouraged by your incredible tzevet. On visitor’s day we were told by Hannah’s counsellor ShayKay that Hannah encouraged her bunk to get to chinch, using the Rebbe’s teaching that summer is not the time to let one’s learning cool off. Gabriel’s counsellor Avi Leiberman told us that he and the rest of B2 staff kept the bunk lights on at night just so that Gabriel could finish his davening. And then of course, there was the siyum that was made in honour of Gabriel completing Shmuel Bet. Wow! When my husband and I saw the photos of the siyum and received Rabbi Effie’s email about it, our hearts were so full of naches. How wonderful that you and the tzevet created and encouraged an environment where my kids could be their authentic selves.

My husband and I see they’ve gained independence and loads of self confidence. We have also learned many of eidah aleph’s cheers over the past few weeks – and loved shouting them while we went canoeing and camping in Algonquin Park last week.

Hannah and Gabriel can’t wait to return to Moshava in 2013 and IYH they’ll be back for many years to come. Yasher Koach to you and the entire Moshava tzevet!

Wishing you continued hatzlacha,

Heather and Michael Aaron

So much fun  

Hi Vicky,

It was great seeing you briefly yesterday. I just wanted to let you know that whatever “formula” you are using for this summer, it is great. Jonah and Aaron are having a fantastic time. I spoke with a few boys in the bunk who were at camp last summer and they said that they are having so much fun this year. We already signed the kids up for next summer! Thanks for your hard work and dedication to camp. We are so lucky to have you.

Enjoy the rest of the summer

First timer eager to return  

I just wanted to tell you what a great time my daughter had. I’m laughing now remembering our conversation months ago when we discussed sending her. What a little camper she turned out to be!!

She just told me she wants to go back to camp now not just next summer but right now. She’s already bored at home.

Thanks for taking such good care of her and making sure she had a wonderful first camp experience.

Shabbat shalom,
