In just a few hours, something magical is going to happen at camp. Campers, counselors and staff will dress up in their very best whites and gather together – many campers for the first time – for Shabbat.

When we ask our campers to name their favorite activities, “Shabbat” is always at the top of their list. It’s one of the only times of the week when we join as one Kehilah Kedosha, a sacred community, to sing, pray, dine, dance – and to celebrate all the amazing experiences we’ve shared.

But don’t take our word for it. See what the kids are looking forward to the most!

What are you excited about for Shabbat?
