What Parents Say

“We love the way our children come home with a love of Shabbat and a sense of community. My daughter especially loves the community feeling, tables, and chug (bunk) situation. She learned to waterski and sail this summer! These are skills she can’t get at home – and one of the reasons we send her to camp! We also are very impressed with the counselors. Their counselors have a love and passion for camp that is very evident. They were very caring, responsible and warm!”

“Both of my children came home more confident, having made lifelong friends, growing “Jewishly,” and becoming proud of who they are.”

“Kids have a great time at Camp Tel Noar. The environment facilitates wonderful relationships between the kids. Friendships are made with age-peers, but also with older campers/counselors (who serve as role models) and with younger campers (giving them the opportunity to be a role model). There is amazing Ruach (spirit) at CTN.”

“My child loved both the daytime and the nighttime activities. The programming was really great.”

“I appreciate the excellent and well-trained staff. They spend so much time getting to know the kids and building community. They make the campers feel secure and loved while away from home.”

“To me, it feels like camp should feel. Tel Noar has an outdoor, out in the woods, by the lake, rustic atmosphere, yet the bunks, dining hall, and pool are quite nice. It has a wide variety of activities, both indoor and outdoor. It is able to achieve a small family feel and create a sense of community. All under a Jewish umbrella.”

“The size has allowed my kids to become part of the Tel Noar community, forge relationship with a staff throughout the camp, and make friends of all ages. As a parent, I have comfort in knowing that the Director and staff really know my kids. It’s a wonderful place!”
