About Camp Moshava Wild Rose

Located in northern Wisconsin, Camp Moshava Wild Rose is the only Jewish Modern Orthodox Overnight camp in the US Midwest. With 242 acres of expansive, beautiful grounds and private lakes, Wild Rose provides the perfect environment for a down to earth, caring camp experience for campers who are in grades 2-9. Moshava Wild Rose is affiliated with Bnei Akiva of the US and Canada Youth Movement. Campers enjoy many activities while at camp, including our aquatics program with a large inground pool, lake toys, and boating, as well as our sports and outdoor adventure programs, which offers team & individual sports, rock climbing, high & low ropes, and biking on seven trails. In addition we pride ourselves on our creative programs, including Melechet Yad (arts & crafts), Teva (nature) in our garden, and culinary arts in our brand new Bishul teaching kitchen. Our camp community is grounded in engaging Jewish practice and learning with an emphasis on Jewish traditions, a very spiritual Shabbat and lots of singing and dancing throughout the summer.
