Family Programs at Camp Yachad

Posted by: Randi Zucker on Friday, August 8, 2014 at 12:00:00 am

Camp Yachad and Community families came together several times this summer to play, dance, eat and rock out! 

Camp families enjoyed Family Camp Night on July 10! The Yachad campsite was open for everyone to bring a picnic dinner and experience an evening “Camp Yachad-style”. Camp families and friends enjoyed a great night of field games, camp crafts, basketball and climbing the ropes course. This amazing community evening was capped off with a shaved ice truck featuring 6 “make your own” flavors. It was a night filled with family-fun!

On July 23, our favorite Jewish rocker, Rick Recht performed a high-energy concert at nearby Wardlaw-Hartridge School. We were so excited to host internationally acclaimed musician, Rick Recht for his 4th appearance at Camp Yachad! Campers and staff sang and danced on stage with Rick, singing all of our Friday favorites such as “The Hope” and “V’Ahavtah”. The energy was contagious and everyone was on their feet for this fun, family event.

Rain did not dampen our Summer Shabbat Shabbang event “Shabbat Under the Stars” on August 1. Thunder and lightning may have moved us inside but we took the stars with us.  Children and adults came together to welcome Shabbat with special guest, Rabbi Goldstein, to bless the candles, wine and challah. Everyone decorated stars to take home with them, dined on Israeli falafel, salad, hummus and chicken nuggets. Families then filled up the dance floor while singing and dancing with Eric Komar, who performed familiar camp songs. 

Please be on the lookout for more camp family fun programs at the “J” throughout the school year!! We will be on the lookout for you!
