“We had the best time! Our daughter was sobbing when it was time to leave, saying, “I’m not leaving Herzl!” The staff was really wonderful and made it such a great experience for everyone.” – Lindsay, Past Family Camper

This weekend is a user-friendly entry into the world of Judaism.  If your family comes from different faith traditions or if you grew up with little religious practice, Judaism has a lot to offer your family as you navigate the joys and challenges of raising children in today’s world.  We’ll learn and explore together in a fun and welcoming way.

 

We’ll enjoy the glorious fall beauty of our 150 acres on our pristine lake and enjoy camp fun and games. There will be time to try our amazing facilities like our realistic climbing wall and canoe our quiet lake, home to eagles, loons, osprey and more.  The woods of Wisconsin in the fall are astounding!

Thursday – 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 choose additional activities to do together. Saturday evening begins with Havdallah led by our teen campers and ends with our annual Family Camp Dance.
