Thank you for your interest in attending our Rosh Hashanah at camp program. We are thrilled to announce that Rosh Hashanah at camp is so popular that it is filled to capacity. The capacity is set by the camp - and we are trying to see if it is possible to increase it and get you in. 


Rosh Hashanah at Camp is so popular in fact, that even our wait list has reached capacity. If you were unable to sign up in time to join us for this year, DON'T WORRY! We will be celebrating Rosh Hashanah at Camp Hess Kramer again, next year. Mark it on your calendars now so that you can sign up for it early for next year's Rosh Hashanah.

Come dressed for a day at camp

Here’s the day in brief:

Start your morning with coffee and coffeecake – for a sweet new year. 
Following a shofar blast – we will walk to the outdoor chapel for a Rosh Hashanah “Camp” service.

There will be two rounds of “Camp Programming” on the theme of creation (separated by a BBQ lunch on the lawn and picnic tables) after our hour long service.

Planned activities include:

  • Primordial drum circle (recreate the sounds of creation with drums) with John from Drumtime
  • Take a 7 Days of creation hike to the menorah
  • When God created people – they danced! (Israeli Dance)
  • Yoga – a chance to connect your body to your mind and to appreciate the blessings in your life
  • Creation began with light – and with light we bring in Shabbat – Candle Making
  • God created the world  –make “Edible creation dessert”
  • A Reflection Project – a family conversation to set intentions for the coming year
  • Sports – soccer, basketball and gaga
  • And, of course an option to do nothing but relax, read, listen to music and to reflect on creation
  • Then, at about 2pm, we will walk to the beach for Tashlich – where we will conclude the day with a brief ceremony and cast our sins into the water

Sorry, Registration has ended.
