“Adventure... It’s In Our Nature”
The mission of Camp Chazak is to provide a wholesome summer experience.
The programs offer an exciting, rigorous and enjoyable learning system, where boys build on their knowledge gained throughout the previous years and acquire an appreciation of deeper understanding of Torah, mitzvos and middos tovos.
Safety, health and fun recreational experience, are our guides in choosing afternoon programs and trips. Teamwork, good sportsmanship ethics, self-confidence, and self-control are our focus to make sure each and every child becomes as successful as he can.
Our trips build character, teach to admire the beauty that Hashem had surrounded us with and develop a taste for a special thrill that cannot be achieved by simple means - the thrill of an accomplishment!
