Camp Themes & Lessons

  • GPS Prayer Curriculum


    The “GPS” or “Global Prayer System” curriculum (originally pioneered at the Jewish Girls Retreat) takes students on a journey around the world and through the siddur. Each one of the 22 lessons focuses on one tefillah, and a “destination” in the world connected to the lesson. Davening becomes meaningful through explanation of the words, games, stories, discussion, and hands-on activities. The curriculum is 170 pages.


  • Flying to Freedom Curriculum


    The Journey of the Jews from slavery to freedom is not ancient history, but the story of our lives. When faced with a difficulty, we are experiencing a personal Egypt. We CAN escape these boundaries to reach our fullest potential and achieve our hopes and dreams. The stories of our ancestors will come alive as we travel on our own journey to greater confidence, true joy and lasting friendships. Are you ready for takeoff?!

    Each of the 22 lessons focus on a step in the journey of the Jews from Egypt to Israel, and how the lessons apply to our lives today.
