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
Thank you very much for a wonderful camp experience at Moshava Ennismore. Miryam had a great time!
I think it’s very important for kids in the greater NYC area to venture out to other places and meet people and peers. It is not only rewarding but also creates a bond with other communities.
Again, thank you.
If you could pass my thanks around to the appropriate staff I would appreciate it.
I just wanted to send you a quick email thanking you and the staff of camp moshava. My daughter came home after her first summer at sleep away camp and I don’t know if her experience could have been any better. She was beyond excited to tell and show us everything about camp. When we asked her if she wants to go back next year her answer was 1000 percent . She showed us her sidder and played the yala habbi and other songs.
Thanks again for making it a summer she will remember
All the best
The campers adopt the core values of Moshava and Bnei Akiva, the environment is respectful and inspiring , the campers find role models of every age ( campers and staff), the spirit of Shabbat, Tisha b’av And tefilla empowers the religious practice, diversity of campers from Israel, USA and Canada and especially Yachad enriches the culture ....
