Discover Camp Nesher

At Camp Nesher, each new day brings more to learn, see, and experience. Our time in the sun is filled with athletics, water activities, and unforgettable programs, all wrapped in a special ruach that permeates throughout camp.

7:25am Wake Up and MifkadIt’s time to get up and start our day! Mifkad (line-up) at the flagpole includes raising both the American and Israeli flags followed by the recitation of both the Pledge of Allegiance and Hatikvah. It's also a great time for daily announcements, sharing sports scores, and birthday wishes!

8:50am Breakfast The best meal of the day! Campers sit by bunk with their counselors in the Chadar Ochel as they enjoy breakfast served cafeteria-style. The menu changes daily, but always features both hot and cold selections including fresh fruit.
