5 Days/5 Ways- Areyvut's First Annual Chesed Camp

Monday, August 8, 2016

Please join us for 5 Days/5 Ways, our first Annual Chesed Camp! 

All students entering Middle School (that's incoming 6th, 7th and 8th graders) are invited to participate in a week-long camp where we will travel around to different sites each day bringing joy and spreading kindness to those in need.  5 Days/5 Ways is a coed program. It promises to be a fun, meaningful and engaging camp that will last well beyond the summer.

Learn how to be a Mitzvah Clown and bring a smile to people's faces!  Help clean trails and beautify and protect the environment!  Read to younger children and bring the joy of books to others!  Camp will meet each day from 9:00 to 4:00.  We are pleased that camp will be based at Friends of Lubavitch of Bergen County (the Chabad of Teaneck) located at 513 Kenwood Place and we thank them for their partnership.

Each day will have a theme and throughout the week participants will volunteer for, do hands on projects to benefit and interact with more than 15 local and Israel based agencies.  The themes for 5 Days/5 Ways will be:

Monday: Hunger and Poverty
Tuesday: Israel
Wednesday: Caring for the Sick and Elderly
Thursday: The Environment
Friday: Intergenerational Understanding
