All homes begin with a foundation. A strong foundation when building any structure is critical — and the same applies with building character, values, and passion in children. Just as foundations are built to withstand major headwinds, children need a strong base to navigate life’s complexities — and by nurturing their resilience, confidence, self esteem, and empathy, we strive to equip children with essential life skills and middot.
We strongly believe that camp is one of the primary institutions that help lay this crucial foundation for children’s growth and Jewish identity. In their most critical and formative years, summer camp empowers campers to become confident, independent, compassionate, and capable individuals who can navigate life’s challenges with resilience and success. The unique environment of summer camp is unmatched — and we are honored to be part of these foundational years of growth and love for yiddishkeit.
This past week began laying this foundation, for each individual camper’s growth and for our summer as a whole. While it’s impossible to capture the ruach, creativity, learning, and fun in an email or photos, we do our best through our weeklyPreShabbat Video.

From our home to yours, wishing you and your family a Shabbat Shalom!
