Senior Camp

Senior Camp (Grades 3rd - 6th)

Our highly-trained and caring staff will challenge and excite campers as they build character, form lasting friendships, and learn about Jewish traditions and culture.  Campers will join in camp ruach (spirit) and gain a sense of belonging while developing new skills through various camp activities.  Campers will participate in weekly and camper’s choice activities, as well as have the opportunity to sleep at or away from our camp site and enjoy cookouts and weekly themed activities.  Our Senior Campers will be the first age group to choose weekly chugim (hobby activities).

Grades 3 & 4: Yehuda יהודה

Attending Camp Centerland five days per week, our campers entering third and fourth grades enjoy all that camp has to offer in areas of swim, outdoor recreation, nature, crafts, and extreme sports, such as climbing the wall and the low ropes course. Third grade is the first year campers are able to tackle the Zip Line!

Grades 5-6: Atid עתיד

The oldest Camp Centerland campers have the run of camp at their finger tips. Atid campers enjoy all that camp has to offer, such as daily swimming, nature, sports, music, and crafts, in addition to an entire afternoon of choice activities. Atid campers won’t want to miss our special OFF (Overnight, Field Trip, and Fun) weeks which include one exciting local field trip, followed by an on-site overnight and one trip away from camp for an OFF-site overnight. Fifth grade is the start of the high ropes course program.

Please check our calendar for dates of Yehuda's overnights this summer.

*Please note, if campers DO NOT wish to sleep over at Camp Centerland, they may be picked up directly from camp upon their return from the field trip in the evening.

**Also note, for the field trips, the entire unit will be travelling on these days. For any campers not attending the field trip, parents will need to make other arrangements for child care.
