Programs by Eidah

2 week program (grade 2 – 7)

This program is open to a predesignated amount of campers in grade 2-7 that have not previously done the 2 week program*. This program takes place the first two weeks of camp and allows the campers to add on 2 more weeks. Registration is on a first come. first serve basis.  Activities include swimming, sports, water activities, art, trips and more. Campers that have already done Minimosh are still eligible to the 2 week program.

 

Eidah Aleph (grade 2, 3 and 4)

Eidah Aleph provides a comprehensive program of sports, arts and crafts, shiurim, (lessons), hiking, overnights, boating, swimming, videography, waterskiing and more. Although special programs vary from year to year, past activities have included berry picking and horseback riding, mini golf, or a day at the zoo. For many campers, Eidah Aleph is the first experience away from home and it is our job to make this experience extremely positive. Older staff is chosen for this age group and are constantly keeping in mind the specific needs of this age. We instill independence and memories that will be felt in the home throughout the year

Eidot Bet (grade 5 and 6), Gimmel (grade 7), and Daled (grade 8)

These programs each provide a comprehensive itinerary of sports, arts and crafts, shiurim (lessons), boating, swimming, drama, an overnight canoe trip, banana boating, water skiing, rock climbing and many more activities. Many special programs include color war, sports day, concerts, inter camp, and fantastic night activities and special trips. Our programs are created to provide the campers with hours of fun, but at the same time stimulate intellectual, physical, emotional and social growth. All programs are designed especially tailored to their individual age groups.

Mach Hach (grade 9 graduates)

The Mach Hach program helps campers begin the transition into future Moshava tzevet (staff) members, helping them achieve a sense of independence, and develop a deeper sense of pride and responsibility. The program offers formal and informal leadership training consistent with the values of Bnei Akiva, while still allowing the campers to continue enjoying the many activities available at Moshava. To promote unity, Mach Hach has its own living area, separate from the rest of camp, spends three days on a canoe trip and enjoys a trip to Niagara Falls. Truly a summer to remember!

Manhigut (grade 10)

Manhigut (leadership) is our newly redesigned program; balancing camper life with a focus on staff training; teaching the skills needed to become our future leaders in Camp Moshava and Bnei Akiva. Campers are given the tools and opportunities to challenge themselves, to be inspired and to inspire those around them, while still enjoying the many activities available at Moshava. The Manhigut program is a hands-on training experience, as the participants learn to become madrichim (counselors) and Anafim (specialists), by learning to plan programs, lead activities and share in the responsibility of taking care of campers.

Lots of pluses  

Moshava’s major strength is the Modern orthodox environment, Shabbos observance, Judaism in a fun environment, tefillah, ruach—life lines for Jewish kids in today's environment

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!

Please thank the staff  

Dear Vicky,

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.

Most Sincerely,

Suzanne Fischer
