Parents and family of Our 2018 Hagigah Campers, Board Members & Community Leaders! You are warmly invited to our annual…

2018 Mark & Peachy Levy Hagigah Festival of the Arts!

The Hagigah program is an opportunity for creative campers to showcase and explore their skills, and to discover new artistic talents. Every year, their experience culminates in a camp-wide festival to celebrate and honor their work. Come and see what they have accomplished! Please join our entire camp community in sharing in this special celebration.

This year’s festivities will include:

  • A Special Reception with the Camp Directors
  • Dinner with all the Hagigah Families
