"Every summer that I come to camp, I find that I learn something new. The biggest thing I learned about myself this summer was that I am capable of doing a lake swim to Poyntelle and then back to Lewis Village." - Lindsay, 15
"Getting the opportunity to live with your closest friends is incredible! "- Ian
"My first summer here I was scared to swim in the lake because I wasn't a great swimmer but sure enough with the support of a few close friends the greatest staff here I learned to do it. "- Zach
"Friday night Shabbat dinner is my favorite camp tradition. The food is delicious and it’s special because everyone gets to sit with whoever they want, for instance, with friends in other bunks. "- Rachel, 8
Cooking and Arts and Crafts
At arts and crafts we make really cool projects, things like fashion designing, beading, making bracelets and jewelery, menorahs and mezzuzahs.- Maddy
