Camp Chaverim

Creating unity by appreciating each person's incredible value!

At Camp Chaverim, we work very hard to appreciate one another. We have a zero-tolerance bullying policy. The Ahavas Yisroel here is real- it is what makes Camp Chaverim so special. Boys choose Chaverim specifically because we offer a broad range of fun and engaging activities for all ages and interests. Chaverim counselors are carefully selected Beis Medrash Bochurim who exhibit exceptional middos, a whole lot of energy, and a real understanding of how to work with kids. Boys grow tremendously in their Limud Hatorah at Camp Chaverim because of our engaging morning iyun seder, our afternoon Hands on Halachah program, and our spectacular “after hours” optional incentive learning program called Vesen Chelkainu.
