Chaverim counselors are carefully selected top talent that exhibit exceptional middos, a whole-lot of energy, and a real understanding of how to work with kids. Furthermore, our minimum age for all counselors is going into 2nd year Beis Medresh and there are two counselors per bunk.



In our learning program, learning is serious, but never boring. Our expert Rebbeim teach the boys how to increase their ability to make a laining when learning Gemara and Mishnayos. Campers get to learn Halachah in hands-on workshops such as Safrus, Esrog Checking, Tvilas Kelim, and Making Tzitzis.
