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

Dear Vicky

Once again I want to congratulate you and express a personal Thank You, for your incredible work at Camp Moshava.

Despite everything that has been thrown at you this year, during visiting day it was hard not to be impressed by the smiles on all of the campers and the beaming faces of their parents. Your staff was so warm and friendly they made every feel welcome. And I know that no of this happens by accident. None of this just comes together the way it does because things are left to chance. I realize how hard you work throughout the year, and all those the long nights that you put in from September to August. In today’s world we tend to be judged by our results and everyone can clearly see that YOUR RESULTS ARE OUTSTANSDING!!!!

Incredible summer experience  

My child learned to water ski on 1 ski (dropped and went around the whole lake).. cant wait to learn how to deep water start next summer… i hope the rosh agam jacob is coming back.. he was great too!!|the leadership (VIcky is a fantastic camp director and her camp experience is an asset to every parent staff and camper) and professionals that run each department…(such as nurse TK in the marp, or gilda at the pool, or shari as camp mom) they work tirelessly all for the effort of the camp.
