Camp Mishkon is a wonderfully unique camp, designed to provide children and adults with severe special needs an unforgettable summer experience, as well as provide some much needed respite for the families of these wonderful individuals. Unfortunately, Camp Mishkon is closing. Some of the staff are working tirelessly to open a new camp that will provide the same benefits to these special children (and their families).

R u sure????!
That’s crazy….. I never would have imagined that. Why is it closing?
Unfortunately, yes I am sure (unless a miracle reverses recent events). As to “why” they are closing, I don’t really know and would prefer not to speculate. I only hope this new camp will receive the support it requires to open up for these children, who look forward to the summer all year and whose families really need the break from the intense mesiras nefesh they exert throughout the year.
BTW, there is a beautiful article about a recent Shabbaton that the counselors of Mishkon held for the campers in the Raleigh Hotel 2 weeks ago. See pages 150-151 of the Lakewood Shopper.
