Year Round Activities
Camp Gesher is also a providing activities, lectures, Israeli folk dancing and holiday programs for smaller Jewish communities outside of Toronto and other big Jewish centres. Kids from the big city of Toronto and other Jewish communities are engaging together in activities based on Jewish identity and the relation with Israel, each brings their own unique aspect.
In Toronto, we have a lively Ken with many events hosted at our Bayit, the communal house where madrichim (counselors) live and run activities from. We have shabbat dinners for every kvutza, community holiday celebrations, educational programs, tikkun olam projects, and weekend-long seminars where campers from all around can join us.
Another important initiative that Camp Gesher is involved with, is the informal Jewish-Israeli education at the Jewish day schools and Shuls. Camp Gesher, together with the formal school teachers, designs enrichment programs that are taught at school in a fun and creative way. Gesher has successfully run programs at the Paul Pena Downtown Jewish Day School, The Beaches Shul, Montessori Hebrew Day school, Hillel Sunday school and the Danforth Circle. All of the programs are designed and run by our senior staff members.
