At the beginning of each session, guided by their counselors, bunks use a  consensus decision-making process to sign up for specific activities.  In this way, campers plan bunk activities that are a balance between trying new things and sharing what they love to do.

Shabbat is a special part of the week. On Friday night, we welcome Shabbat by lighting candles, enjoying Shabbat dinner, and then participating in a Kabbalat Shabbat (Friday evening) service created by campers. 

After sleeping in on Saturday morning, campers participate in Shabbat services followed by an all-camp activity and a festive lunch.

In the afternoon, everyone gathers together to relax, swim, play sports, read, and hang out with friends, before joining together for dinner.

After dinner we have either a talent show or open-mike coffee house folllowed by a moving havdalah service (the ceremony that separates Shabbat from the rest of the week).

Shabbat at Camp Timbrel is truly a day of rest, a taste of the Garden of Eden.
