Summer 2020 isn’t what we planned, but it won’t get the best of us!  We are bringing a little bit of camp to your homes and hearts this summer with Herzl@Home!

Our virtual summer programming brings a little ruach into each day and breaks up the monotony of a long summer at home.  Herzl@Home activities and gatherings are happening from June 15 – August 8. 

All activities are free of charge.  Pick and choose from weekly age-based options and all-camp activities.  Try something new, meet up with friends, make some new ones, and celebrate Shabbat as a k’hillah (community). Programming schedule is set by age, time and participation channel (Zoom or Facebook Live).  Registration is required for chugim a week in advance.  Mark your calendars for the time slots and check the registration page each week for the details of the week’s activities and leaders.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here are the six programming options we are offering.  Click through on Drea’s Clipboard for this week’s schedule.  Register for each activity individually there.

Chugim 

Week-long activities by age group from 9 am to noon, Monday through Friday.  Small groups of campers will participate in 45-75 minute activities over Zoom. These fun and shticky activities give campers a chance to learn something new and share an activity with kids their age each weekday.

Tochnit Erev/Quarantevening Program Description

One night a week, campers gather by age group for a fun evening program led by Summer 2020 camp staff over Zoom.  We’ll start off visiting in small groups and then join together for an “all-camp” game.  Registration ends an hour before your program starts.

Bayit Time

Like Tzrif Time (cabin time) but at your Bayit (home)!  A treasure trove of camp-style activities for your family to pick and choose to fill some time and spark some ruach at home. Herzl coloring sheets, scavenger hunts, rate-a-room challenges are a few of the things you’ll find in this shared Google Drive file. New ideas and activities added throughout the summer plus a curated resource list for more ideas and activities. Click here to access.

K’vutza Programming 

Each week, Kadimah, B’yachad, and Ozrim will gather as a K’vutza (group). We can’t spend the summer at camp but we can experience the togetherness and rites of passage that come with these k’vutzot. 

Pray your Way Thursdays

Explore ways to connect with Jewish prayer. Once per week, campers and parents are invited to join in for a 45 minute prayer experience. Options may include yoga, meditation, group discussion, or traditional prayer.  Age-based programming will be offered through Zoom or Facebook Live Thursdays throughout the morning.

Shabbat Programming

Welcome Shabbat together with camper-led candlelighting and song sessions.  Welcome the new week with Havdallah.  Some gatherings via Zoom, some on Facebook Live.  This programming is for all ages and parents are encouraged to join in.
