Machal
For campers completeing 9th grade.

This program is tailored for the high school chanich completing 9th grade. These chanichim enjoy their own campsite, known as "The Hill", separate from the rest of camp. Machal helps bring these campers closer together by challenging them to find that inner, pioneering spirit demonstrated by early Zionist settlers. The site includes its own chadar ochel (dining hall), beit knesset, and sports facilities, while at the same time being in close proximity to the main grounds of the camp, enabling chanichim of "The Hill" to take full advantage of all of our amenities. Adult staff members reside at this campsite to provide additional supervision and educational enrichment. Machal is designed to create a cohesive shevet (age group), through programs in camp and on trips out of camp. One of the special Machal trips that chanichim enjoy is a 3-day canoe/bike/horseback riding trip.

Start Date: 6/25/18
End Date: 8/6/18

 

Sayeret Torah V'Avodah
For campers completing 10th grade.

The Sayeret Torah V'Avodah program offers a limited number of elite chanichim completing 10th grade to live the ideals of Torah V'Avodah. Along with the traditional tafkidim (jobs) of the "Avodah " program, such as working in the Chadar Ochel (dining hall) and general jobs around the Machaneh, Sayeret Torah V'Avodah is a 6 week program in which chanichim (campers) will participate in daily peulot (activities) such as sports, swimming and zipline, along with unique once in a lifetime tiyulim (trips). While in Machane, members of the program will participate in seminars and shiurim led by professional staff, teaching leadership skills and the values of Torah V'Avodah and how to practically apply these skills in their own communities. In addition, the chanichim will also be actively involved in Gimelut Chasadim (acts of kindness) through a building project in Machaneh and by giving back to local Wisconsin institutions. Sayeret Torah V'Avodah serves as a transition from chanich to tzevet (staff), with 6 final weeks of fun, learning, chesed, adventure and memories that will last a lifetime

Start Date: 6/20/18
End Date: 8/6/18

 

Madrich-In-Training (MIT)
For returning campers completing 11th grade

Our madrich-in-training (MIT) program provides a challenging combination of hands-on training, seminars, and extracurricular activities to help prepare our future counselors. Each MIT is assigned to a bunk for the entire 6-week session, sleeping, eating, and spending time with that bunk. MITs enjoy many of the same privileges and activities available to full-fledged staff. In addition, there are trips and programs planned specifically for the MITs that provide a well-rounded, enjoyable, and rewarding experience. We are pleased to announce that a lifeguard training certification course will be included for all MITs.
