Megamot

What are Megamot?

One day a week for 2 hours, campers will have the ability to choose from an array of different specialty activities that are taught by experts in their fields. We call these choice activities – megamot. Megamot take place outside of camp (within a 20 km range) and in in camp. Megamot are distributed on a first come, first serve basis so if campers do not get their first choice we will move down to their second and then their third. If a camper picks the same megama for all three choices, and the megama is full, we will chose the megama for them.

Please note Eidah Aleph, Eidah Bet 1 and Eidah Bet 2 sign up for Megamot here. Eidah Gimmel, Eidah Daled and Mach Hach will sign up for Megamot in camp.

PLEASE DO NOT SIGN UP YOUR CHILD WITHOUT THEIR INPUT FIRST.

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
