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.

Amazing camp  

It’s Hadar Posner. I wanted to say that you run a amazing camp. Also, thank you for having my mom there as rosh breicha. You hire a amazing staff. You also have amazing Peulot. I can’t choose wich one I like most. This camp you run is special, fun and amazing. I was even crying when the 4 weekers left, when my councellors Aleeza and Carly left and when I left. This camp is so close together like a big family. Once again, THANK YOU!

Shabbat Shalom

Love,

Hadar

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

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,
