Almost nothing so firmly inspires a youngster's Jewish identity than spending summers at a Jewish camp, and Temple Chaverim is proud to have earned awards year after year for sending significant numbers of our children to our URJ (Union for Reform Judaism) camps -- Camp Eisner and Crane Lake Camp.

Click here for the link to Eisner Camp and Crane Lake Camp in the beautiful Berkshires of Massachusetts. For children with special needs, a seven-day camping experience is also available at Camp Chazak.

chazakThe URJ Eisner and Crane Lake Camps, in partnership with Top Bunk Camping Consultants, have an incredible opportunity this summer. This program will only thrive with your help. Our new program, Camp Chazak, is a chance for the Eisner and Crane Lake Camps community to be truly inclusive. This program has the potential to change the lives of its participants. Children with special needs, work incredibly hard during the school year, many of them giving up a large part of their summer for school. Camp Chazak is place for kids to come, make friends, build a community and have fun.

Our program is unique because it combines both therapeutic and recreational activities. The campers will utilize all of the facilities that camp has to offer including, the ropes course, lake, pool, arts and crafts, soccer, baseball and more. Social skills development and group building activities will be built into each element of the program. Chazak targets 9-13 year olds with social deficits who are high functioning in regards to hygiene, etc. Many of these campers are diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome, High Functioning Autism, and other disorders involving social developmental delays.

There is a line in the Talmud that reads, “Every blade of grass has its angel that bends over it and whispers ‘grow, grow.’” Camp Chazak is a place for children to grow, both as individuals and as members of our larger community. Think of the children in your congregation, community and in your life who would benefit from Camp Chazak.
