Overnight camping trips for    Summer Camp programing

We offer our services to camps each summer. We can organize one to two night camping or backpacking/canoeing trips for campers within the Tri-State area.  Contact Yechezkel Barnett for more details.

Give your son a summer he will remember the rest of his life.  With training in these skills and by understanding the basics of wilderness safety and respect, he may find a desire to seek Hashem in His Glory.


Included in the cost of our overnight camping programs is the trip organization, scheduling, camping gear, local travel, all meals, and educational training. 

These trips are prepared for the beginner to intermediate outdoorsman.  Each person’s abilities and experiences will be taken into account and  accommodations can be made for each individuals' needs.  The ultimate goal is to take some time to get away from civilization.  

At times we'll be roughin’ it; each person will carry their own belongings and we are sleeping in pack tents with pads and sleeping bags.  Proper instruction will be arranged so as to help each person pack appropriately and as light as possible.  Adventures are on rain or shine!  Part of relating to nature is dealing with the elements.
