Herzl Camp offers a wide variety of activities to excite and engage all types of kids. Campers choose three activities (chugim) each day and cabin groups can sign up for an activity together once a day. Our goal is to provide opportunities to try new things, build skills, and have fun! Some favorites are waterskiing, rock climbing, Ultimate frisbee, cooking, ceramics, dance, philosophy, newspaper chug, tennis, basketball, farm & garden, and many more. New this year – aerial park and challenge course!
For 2021, we are offering two 25-day sessions for most age groups. Campers in 3rd-5th grade have a 10-day option. Creating two separate sessions ensures that we can safely run camp even if the coronavirus pandemic has not abated. Click here for program dates and tuition.
Health & Safety
Herzl Camp provides medical coverage 24-hours a day, 7 days a week with nurses and doctors on site. Our Marpeah (Health Center) staff care for all routine health issues at camp without charge. Emergency services are provided at nearby Burnett County Medical Center, a fully-equipped trauma center.
In 2021, we will implement community mitigation strategies as required by the prevalence of the virus at that time. This may include testing, use of face masks, creating camper/staff pods, limiting of all-camp activities, and quarantining campers and staff who are ill. Visitors will not be allowed in 2021. Campers who must leave camp for personal reasons will not be able to return. For complete details, review our Covid-19 Preparedness Plan.
We serve three healthy kosher meals and a nosh (snack) each day. Vegetarian options are available for all meals. Special diets and allergies are managed by a dedicated staff person. Whole grains, fresh veggies and ripe fruit are always on the menu.
