What makes Camp Shaashuim Different?

We're not different. We are a regular camp and yet:

  1. Our small size enables the staff to know each boy and provide lots of personal attention. The congenial family type atmosphere enables each boy to shteig, and feel attended to.

  2. Our program is wholesome. We believe that geshmak should come from within and not have to be motivated. When boys feel connected, they mimeilah exude energy and geshmak.

  3. We believe that capitalizing on learning groups in camp is imperative to being matzliach in yeshiva in the upcoming year. Our goal during learning groups is to shteig and help every boy taste success. Our rebbeim are innovative, invested, and committed to reaching each boy at his level utilizing a skills-based approach. Propelling each boy forward is in line with our wholesome belief that "Every boy is awesome."

  4. We believe that campers like to play sports. However, we also offer unique elective activities to round out our packed program.

  5. We promote positivity and the basics. Tzitzis and yarmulkas are always required, bullying is not tolerated, and foul language and electronics are prohibited.
