SUMMER THEME:
Super Camp… Soaring to new Heights

We at Camp Klurman believe camp is about exploring, using our imagination and of course having fun! A camp theme helps each week be more memorable. This summer our theme is “Super Camp,” which will guide each week’s creative activities curriculum.

SPECIAL CAMP-WIDE EVENTS:
Color War: Color War is meant to be the highlight of the summer.  It is a FUN competition designed for all campers to shine while building their sportsmanship skills.
Water Carnival: Cool off from the summer heat!  Water slides and water activities are enjoyed by all for a day of fun!
Parent Shabbat: Shabbat is celebrated weekly at camp, throughout the summer we have a few Fridays where parents are invited to join and experience the joy of a Camp Klurman Shabbat with their camper.
Israel Day: Every summer we experience Israel in our Camp Klurman way! With the help of Schlichim (counselors from Israel), we learn all about Israel.
JUDAIC PROGRAM:

JUDAIC PROGRAM:
Camp Klurman is the ideal space for children of all religious and ethnic backgrounds; we strive to nurture campers to develop into responsible, respectful, global citizens. Complemented by our informal Jewish environment, campers develop a deeper understanding of and appreciation for Jewish heritage and traditions while also developing a true sense of community.

SHABBAT:
Each week we celebrate Shabbat as a camp community.   Shabbat is a time where we all come together to prepare for the day of rest with special prayers, songs, and programs. Shabbat is also an opportunity to acknowledge campers and staff, showcase new skills and socialize with one another. Throughout the summer, the camp will open a few Shabbat celebrations to parents.
