Values and fun  

The values that Moshava instils in each chanich is phenomenal, both in terms of education and a love of Torah and Israel.

Returning with pleasure  

I have been meaning to write since Eyal returned from camp. Your email yesterday about camp ending today prompted me into action.

To no one’s surprise Eyal had a wonderful summer. He returned filled with wonderful memories and I am certain he will be returning in the coming years. There is now an ongoing argument between him and his NJ based cousins over which Moshava is better.

I wanted to thank you for all your efforts early on in the decision process and all throughout the summer.

Enjoy the rest of your summer. I hope you get a chance to take a few days off!!!

Best regards,

Arye

PS the daily pictures on the website were a most wonderful daily distraction

Perfect for my child  

Ahavat Yisrael and the programming / organization / staff must be excellent because my children are very happy at Moshava. A major strength is Vicky. I trust her.

Growth and independence  

I liked that Serena was able to form new friendships outside of school... that there were no electronics... and that there was the opportunity for growth, independence, and inspiration of Israel

Most beautiful experience  

On Visiting Day we spent just two hours in the camp briefly talking to staff members. I was surprised with warmth, care and closeness that counselors and senior staff members have with children. They managed to make us feel at home for this short time. I was touched by Rabbi Cutler’s message about the time my daughter spends learning and davening. Please send my words of gratitude to everybody.

My daughter talks about camp as the most beautiful experience she has ever had.

Thank you!

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.

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

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.
