A summer experience created especially for first-time boy campers!
We know how hard it can be to send a child off to summer camp for the first time, and all the data demonstrates it’s particularly difficult to part with your first-time boy camper. We want to make it easier for you and them by providing this transitional camp experience.
Campers in this program will attend camp for a seven-day mini-session to get a flavor of all the great activities and experiences camp has to offer. They’ll live in a dedicated cabin with counselors and spend their days alongside the rest of their age group. They’ll have access to all the great camp activities, from sports to swim instruction to adventure, nature and the arts. All campers will also get to experience the magic of Shabbat at camp.
If you’re unsure of what kind of camp experience you’re looking for, try a week at each camp! Eisner Camp features camper-selected activities within a grade-level unit. At Crane Lake Camp, campers move throughout the day with their cabin groups to experience all the activities camp has to offer.
The best part is the cost: only $750 for each session! Campers who try Taste of Camp this summer will still be eligible for the One Happy Camper grant for first-time campers next summer. The “Taste of Camp” is the perfect way for your boy camper to connect with kids his own age and discover a place where he can spend his summers doing what he loves!
