Love for Israel. Waterski program. Ruach in the chadar and during colour war. Tisha B,Av program. Seudat shlishit zmirot in the chadar. Our son was originally scheduled to stay for one session. When we arrived on visitors day, the first question he asked us was “can I please stay for the second session! “. That one statement said it all.
Elianna’s experience at camp this summer went beyond any expectations I had at the start of the summer. It is amazing how in just 4 weeks of camp she has grown so much in her appreciation of Shabbat, knowledge of Jewish “Heros” as well as a feeling of independence.
When talking to her about life at camp, Elianna turned to me and said that she thinks Camp has made her feel prouder to be a Jew. When I asked her what her favorite activity was at camp, she responded to my surprise, Chinuch. She even wants to buy a siddur (just like the ones at camp, because it seems everything is the best at camp). She of course loved the other activities like Horseback Riding, Teva, Arts and Crafts, the Swing, Swimming and of course Shekem. For the last month any time we went anywhere or did anything it was always the pool was much better at camp, the pizza was the best there …
She loved her Counselors and I was impressed with them as well when I met them on visiting day. I could clearly see the kesher that they had with my daughter. She referred to Keshet as her substitute Mom at camp.
I found the communication from the camp to be excellent, from the email alerts regarding bad weather to the first Friday call from her Rosh Eidah reassuring me that she was having a blast at camp as well as scouring the many pictures for a glimpse of my daughters smile and what the campers were up to, the videos were great as well.
Thank you for providing Elianna with such a great summer full of wonderful memories. She keeps telling her sister how great camp is and now her sister wants to go to camp too. She is looking forward to another great summer next year, b”h.
Wishing you a Shana Tova
A big thank you to you and your staff for an unbelievable job done with such love and dedication. A special thank you to Rav Cutler for all his words of Torah. What you do affects a child for the rest of their lives. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for all you’ve done for my son. His time at Camp Moshava has had a big impact on him.
