A Day at Camp

Camp Nesher follows the same daily schedule six days a week and a special schedule beginning on Friday afternoon through Shabbat. Below is a version of the daily schedule for both Eidah Alef (entering 3rd – 6th grade) and Eidah Bet (entering 7th – 8th grade). Each division’s actual schedule is unique to them as far the activity order is concerned. Please note that the timing of the Magen division (entering 9th and 10th grade) is different than everyone else’s, beginning with a later wake up.

7:25am – Wake-Up
