Event Description

Camp Gesher returns for 4th year & Peace Garden Summer Camp Debut


Camp Gesher (a Bridge to Friendship), a joint program of Havurah Shir Hadash and Temple Emek Shalom, is a Jewish summer day camp for all kids entering kindergarten through 6th grade in the Fall, regardless of religious affiliation. This summer will mark its 4th annual day-camp and the 2nd year that Andrea Shupack will serve as the director. The camp will run from August 2-6, Monday through Friday from 9 AM – 3 PM daily.



Shupack says, “Our excellent and dedicated staff of counselors and specialists make this camp a spectacular opportunity for kids to play and learn together in a Jewish setting. Camp is filled with arts and crafts, sports, music, drama, field trips, and more. It is a great way for kids to build friendships and a positive Jewish identity.” We strive to integrate Jewish values, themes and practice into all activities from eating lunch and playing games to arts and crafts.

The week culminates in a family Shabbat experience at Temple Emek Shalom on Friday evening, August 6th at 5:00 p.m. Parents will have an opportunity to celebrate Shabbat in community and enjoy a taste of what the kids experienced at camp.

Registration is now open. You can pick up a registration form at either Temple Emek Shalom 541-488-2909 or Havurah Shir Hadash 541-488-7716. For any questions, or to receive a form by email or fax, contact Andrea Shupack at AndreaShupack@gmail.com.

Debuting this summer, the Peace Garden Preschool & Kindergarten, directed by Linda Cohen, is offering two weeks of summer camp for 3-7 year olds: Session 1, July 5-9 and Session 2, August 16-20.

The camp, with a maximum of nine children per session, will offer creative play in the sun and shade of the old walnut tree, arts & crafts, song & story, water play and gardening in an intimate setting. Cohen has been director of Peace Garden since 2002 and has 17 years experience in early childhood education. Call Linda at 541-488-8887 for more info. Register by June 10 for July and by July10 for August session.

We honor and teach the value of diversity. Children of all backgrounds are welcomed. The Havurah is located at 185 N. Mountain Ave. in Ashland.
