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.

Thanks so much!!  

Sorry for the very overdue “Kol Hakavod” on organizing an amazing summer 2011. From the reports and pictures I can see that our daughter is having a fabulous time!! You really spoiled us with that super bunk and counselors! Can’t thank you enough!!

Smiles everywhere  

Hi Vicky,

The boys arrived home with half a smile. They left half of it in camp! They are happy to be home but had such an incredible summer. In fact they are so sure that they are coming back next year that one of them came home with an entirely empty duffle bag!

Please make sure you thank the appropriate staff for making their first camp experience such a success. I was watching the camp pics with a very critical eye. Your programming looked great. The activities seemed engaging and the kids were all happy.

Enjoy the last two weeks of camp. I know the boys wish they were still there

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,
