March 31-April 2, 2017
For Grandmas, Aunts, Moms and girls currently in grades K-8.
Moms, escape to the Berkshires with your daughters for the weekend! Bring grandmas and aunts as well! We'll begin on Friday afternoon at 5:30 and welcome Shabbat camp-style, with a lively, kid-friendly musical service, Shabbat dinner, song session and Israeli dancing. On Saturday, after another kid-friendly Shabbat experience, we'll enjoy crafts, sports, yoga, a "Whodunit" mystery to solve, and create a mother-daughter time capsule. Weather permitting, we'll also be outside playing ball, hiking, and challenging ourselves on our ropes course. While the girls are cared for by our superstar staff, there'll be special opportunities for moms to socialize with one another. We'll say our good-byes at 11:00 on Sunday morning.
Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. The registration deadline is the Monday prior to the weekend. A minimum number of families is necessary for us to offer our Family Camps – invite your friends! Our Family Camps run rain or shine or snow.
