FAQs

What activities will we do throughout the weekend?

Friday: Arrival will begin between 2-3pm, with time to settle into your bunks. Camp Tours will be available throughout the afternoon, and various activity areas will be open for your family to enjoy. We will join together for family-friendly Shabbat services overlooking our beautiful lake, followed by Shabbat dinner, singing and Israeli dancing. Don’t miss the adults-only Shabbat Oneg after the kids are in bed!

Saturday: After services, we will have time for parents and children to go their separate ways for programming by age and a little free time for the adults. The afternoon will have activity areas open to enjoy with your whole family – including the lake and pool, ropes course, arts, athletics, and more! Saturday evening will be a Family Fun evening program, followed by Havdallah and a campfire.

Sunday: Enjoy some additional free time while the kids are engaged in programming by age before we wrap up with our Sunday BBQ and get ready to head back home.

What are the accommodations like?

Most families choose to stay in a Bunk. Each family will be housed in their own bunk, and share a bathroom with one other family (housed in the connecting bunk). Please let us know if you have a family you prefer to share with! Each of our bunks houses 8-12 campers, and has 6 bunk beds and two single beds. Each set of two bunks is connected by a bathroom and shower room.

Our Lodge option is best for those who prefer motel-style accommodations to camp bunk beds! Lodge rooms have either one queen or two twin beds. Families may opt for one room (if you have a single child who will be in a pack and play or air mattress), or two connecting rooms.

Will there be babysitting available?

Children ages 3-12 can join our age-specific programming and have a chance to participate in camp activities including sports, arts, outdoor adventure and more. They will be supervised by Perlman camp counselors. In the evenings, counselors will be “on-duty” to supervise children after parents have put them to bed so you can enjoy your evening with the adults!

Families with children under 3 years old are welcome to join us for the weekend, but children must be supervised by a parent at all times. You are welcome to join any age-appropriate camp activities with your child!
