Every camper eagerly awaits their annual return to Camp Shomria! For many, it makes the summer their favourite time of the year. We use our camp to run 5 weeks of recreational, social, and educational programming in an intentional environment that we create together; one that is built on kibbutz-style living, and cultivates an incredible sense of ownership, of responsibility for each other and our space, from each and every camper and counselor.
Our youth village is run by a talented group of madrichim (counsellors) who have grown up learning and living the values of the movement, and have exceptional experience in a completely unique style of informal education that we have made our own. Each kvutza (age group) is prepared a comprehensive tochnit (curriculum) involving communal responsibility and sharing, leadership, Jewish values, Israeli culture, critical thinking, moral and ethical analysis, tikkun adam (bettering the individual), tikkun olam (bettering the world), as well as so much more; intertwined with intentional building of group relationships and friendships that last a lifetime.
Our educational curriculum is expressed through tools such as games, sports, arts and crafts, nature exploration, canoeing, music, singing, and rikud (dance). Our skilled staff use these elements to invent creative activities and write nightly plays and evening productions that cover an array of genres that can be moving, inspiring, or hilarious.
*NEW* Tracks Program
We're really excited to introduce our Tracks Program, which will run during Second Session (July 21 - August 4).
This program allows chanichimot (campers) to build their own summer experience rooted in experiential project based learning. Chanichimot can focus in on one of our three Tracks (areas of focus), or explore what each track has to offer.
Our Second Session program will also include special programming for Shabbat, full camp activities, time for water front activities and more!
Register for our Second Session today to take part in our Tracks Program!
Track & Workshop selection will open Sunday, April 21st and will be first come first served.
