Gesher Teen Camp is back and better than ever! Gesher- “bridge” in Hebrew is an amazing summer opportunity meant to “bridge” kids’ experiences of traditional day camp with that of incredible trips. This camp will allow your teens to gain independence all while exploring new adventures meeting new friends, and celebrating Jewish living. If you are looking for the Camp Mindy experience, but your teen is ready for a change, Gesher is the perfect combination.
Gesher Traditional Camp
• Rising Grades 6, 7 & 8
• All camps are Monday-Friday; 9am-4pm (with some exceptions on out-of-camp days)
Camp will consist of 3 days of “traditional” on-site activities (swimming, sports, arts & crafts, computers and new activities just for teens!) The other 2
days will be spent off-site traveling to all sorts of exciting places, such as Wet n’ Wild Water Park or Paintball Kingdom. Every Friday will be our community
service day. Whether we are baking cookies at the Ronald McDonald House or making meals at Friendship Trays, Friday is our day to help the community.
CIT/ & LIT Camp
The CIT & LIT programs provide opportunities for 9th and 10th grade teens who want to further develop their leadership and communication skills as well as gain experience in planning and instructing activities for young children. The CIT program will focus more on cabin dynamics, planning counselor led activities, First Aid certification, and how to become an effective and successful counselor. The LIT program will focus on the daily ins and outs of making a camp run successfully. From learning how to be a Specialist to gaining an understanding of how the administrative operations work, as an LIT you will have the opportunity to lead activities, become CPR certified, and gain critical experience needed to become a successful camp staff member. Acceptance into the program is based on an application and interview. Both CIT & LIT programs are two weeks in length.
