Daily Schedule

The daily schedule at Gesher ensures that campers of all age groups get to experience the most with their days. The schedule does change from time to time to allow for special events to create that sense of surprise and excitement for the campers. Here is an example of just one day of what is going on with all our age groups:

Group Morning (Block 1) Morning (Block 2) Afternoon (Block 1) Afternoon (Block 2)
Amelim Israeli Dancing Music Sports Arts & Crafts
Chalutzim Music Group Activity Local Farm Visit Local Farm Visit
Solelim Canoe Trip Canoe Trip Canoe Trip Canoe Trip
Chotrim Group Activity Sports Music Water Sports
Bonim Water Sports Group Activity Israeli Program Sports
Bogrim Israeli Program Drama Arts & Crafts Organic Farming

IMG_3295On top of these daily specialty programs, campers have work and interest groups they can join. The campers choose the groups they would like to participate in so there is a level of customization to their days. Examples of some of these interest groups are: helping in the kitchen, getting Red Cross Bronze Cross certified or yoga instruction.

Evening programsĀ are generally camp wide activities that can be anything from educational activities, to singing, to capture the flag. Bedtime begins right after the evening activity for our youngest groups and then proceeds every 15-30 minutes after for the succeeding age groups.
