What’s new?
Due to COVID-19, we will be running camps in 2-week sessions where pods of campers will stay consistent. Pods will be no bigger than 10-15 campers. Campers will not interact with children in other pods during camp operations. We will group each 2-weeks into camp “packages”:   

The Oren Package:
You can find our Art camps under the Oren Package. The word Oren is Hebrew for “pine tree,” and signifies strong roots. Art has strongholds all around the world, influencing our culture and representing the times we live in. Its roots run deep and are constantly growing.
Cost per 2-week session: $750M/$865NM

The Levi Package:
Interested in sports? Check out or Levi Package! Hebrew for “to unite” or “bring together,” campers will learn new skills and how to come together as a team. From soccer to basketball to kickball, teamwork makes the dream work!
Cost per 2-week session: $750M/$865NM

The Yavin Package:
Yavin is Hebrew for “to comprehend.” Here campers will follow their thirst for knowledge and trying new things. They’ll perform exciting experiments, build intricate LEGO creations, and even unlock the secrets of the universe!
Cost per 2-week session: $750M/$865NM

Camp Applications are now being accepted.
