Our Summer Camp Programs - Noar and Kayitz




Noar, which means "youth" in Hebrew, is a travel camp for 6th to 8th graders. It is run in conjunction with Congregation Beth Israel of Charlottesville, VA, and lasts a week. Campers begin in one city and then move to the other city after three days. While at these cities, the campers have home hospitality for two nights and a lock-in at the temple the last night. Activities are scheduled throughout the week, with a trip to Kings Dominion included from Charlottesville and a trip to Emerald Pointe water park from Roanoke. The Noar experience is a full week of fun, Jewish programming and themes, and friendships.

Kayitz, which means "summer" in Hebrew, is a two-week day camp held at Temple Emanuel for children from pre-K through 5th grade. The day begins with a short service, followed by an introduction of the day's theme. Each week follows a theme with Jewish content or values. Older campers (ages 6 to 10) go on a field trip each afternoon, while younger campers (ages 3-5) go home after lunch.
