Family Camp weekend is a meaningful vacation for families, parents and grandparents. Family Camp’s relaxed atmosphere provides a unique opportunity to share the magic of Herzl Camp as a family. It is a perfect way to introduce future campers to the Herzl experience, a chance for current campers to introduce their parent(s) to Herzl Camp and a way for all families to experience Jewish camping together.
The weekend is filled with fun family activities for children, parents and grandparents. Highlights of the schedule:
Thursday- After you arrive, choose from these activities as a family:rock climbing, swimming, boating, basketball, tennis, or gaga. After dinner, family groups gather together at bonfires for singing and s'mores!
Friday- After breakfast, everyone gathers together for one of our favorite Family Camp traditions...braiding the challah that we will enjoy together at dinner. The rest of the day is spent enjoying family activities including water games, art, basketball, drama, or ultimate Frisbee. Shabbat begins with the traditional Herzl Caravan followed by family-friendly services overlooking the lake.
Saturday- After services, adults and kids go their separate ways for programming by age and little free time for the adults.In the afternoon, families can join in the family kickball game or gaga competition or head to the waterfront together. Saturday eveningbegins with Havdallah led by our teen campers (and our staff) and ends with our annual Family Camp Dance.
Sunday- Enjoy some free time while kids are engaged in programming by age before heading home!
