“[My camper] had an enriching, wonderful, experience … The ability to create a sense of community, including the avodah (chores), making Shabbat Extra special, activities and camp life and atmosphere … made forming friendships and feeling connected to the overall Jewish community so accessible.”

Session Summaries

Taste of Tavor (Chalutzimot)
Our two Taste of Tavor programs are opportunities for first-time campers to have a wonderful shorter-term Jewish overnight camp experience, while still experiencing the highlights, excitement, and community building of full-session camp programming. During Taste of Tavor, chanichimot (campers) participate in all the wonderful aspects of Camp Tavor through a special program designed to help campers feel comfortable in a new overnight camp setting. Taste of Tavor is available for chanichimot (campers) entering 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade in the Fall of 2018.

Explore Tavor and Explore Tavor Plus
Our two Explore Tavor programs are medium-length overnight camping opportunities for chanichimot (campers) of all ages to explore Tavor’s unique and empowering camp programming. Explore Tavor and Explore Tavor Plus are shortened versions of our full length programs during which participating campers spend the session with the full session campers in their age group. Please note that Explore Tavor programs end on Visitor’s Day, one week before full session campers return home. Explore Tavor and Explore Tavor Plus are only available for first- and second-time campers.

1st Session and 2nd Session
Camp Tavor offers two “standard” length sessions each summer. First Session is approximately 3 weeks long, and Second Session is approximately 4 weeks long. These sessions are perfect for campers who want to experience the full arc of education and fun offered at Tavor each summer. Please note that the second session amelimot program is three weeks long instead of the full four weeks. Amelimot leave Tavor on Visitor’s Day second session.

Full Summer
Come experience Tavor for the whole summer! We offer a significantly discounted rate for campers that want to attend both First and Second Session. Please note that campers must return home between sessions.

* Kupah: At Tavor, there is no camp store or canteen. Instead, campers pool their money into a kupah (common fund). The campers then work collaboratively to decide on special activities (roller-skating, movies, or parties) that will be covered by the community’s kupah. These funds also help stock a kupah cabinet with toothpaste, soap, shampoo, stamps, batteries, and other essentials.
** All Full Session chanichimot (campers) except for the Madatz return home between sessions
