Camp Hatikvah typically welcomes between 220 - 240 campers in each of its two main sessions. This year, due to COVID, camp will look a little different. Having reduced capacity to just 150 campers per session to better initiate our safety protocols, we will now welcome campers to three main sessions instead. While camp may be a little smaller, we are sure the ruach (spirit) is going to be stronger than ever.
Campers rotate to a variety of land and water activities (see below for a list of some of the amazing things we offer) for recreational fun. While kids learn skills at camp like canoeing and archery, our main focus is on developing "life skills". Specifically, through creative and engaging programming, we teach leadership, adaptability, responsibility and problem solving. We focus on the importance of teamwork and community and our campers leave camp feeling more confident, competent and enriched. This, we believe, is what makes our program so meaningful and impactful.
OUR JEWISH HERITAGE
Camp Hatikvah is a place where children learn of their shared culture, values and history through exciting and engaging experiential learning. Jewish themes are woven into daily activities to help campers develop a rich love and pride in their identity and community.
