Fridays With Felber: July 15th, 2018


In this first short week of camp, we have truly focused on building community. Saturday evening, campers and cabins participated in our Talent Show. Campers who are veterans to the stage shared and supported those who were a little nervous performing in front of all camp. Together we joined as one community to cheer on and celebrate campers’ talents. Kehilah, our core value for this week, is so important in life, and it is one of the things that makes camp so special. Our shared experiences, our willingness to support each other, our encouraging of each person to be exactly who they are want to be, this is the ruach (spirit) of the Camp Wise kehilah and this is why we return each summer.

Camp Wise offers an incredibly diverse range of programs that meet the desires of every camper.  From tubing and SUPboarding on our private lake, to learning to play guitar or throwing a pot, to riding a horse or shooting a basketball kids are able to do the activities they know they love, and try things they never pictured themselves doing.

Camp Life

At Camp Wise, we understand that children of diverse age groups are at varying developmental stages and have different needs while at camp. Unlike many camps who then organize their cabins on a girls side and a boys side we intentionally group our cabins in distinct age-group “villages”.

Camp Wise provides a friendly, supportive, and cooperative atmosphere that fosters individual growth at each camper’s own pace. Campers are encouraged to learn new skills and master old ones, to make decisions, to take responsibility, to be expressive, to live with others, and to have fun. Complemented by our Jewish environment, campers develop a deeper understanding of and appreciation for Jewish heritage and traditions while also developing a true sense of community.  Camp Wise is committed to making sure that every camper leaves with a greater sense of self-esteem and self-confidence; and with memories that will last a lifetime.
