Here at Havaya, these past months have reminded us time and again that we’re so much more than a summer camp. We’re a community in the truest sense of the word — bringing people together to share meaningful experiences, form deep connections, and lift each other up. (And, of course, have some fun while we’re doing it!) As we look to the year ahead, we know that the strength of this community is what will get many of us through these challenging times.
With all this in mind, we wanted to share with you our plans for the next few months. As you’ll see below, we’re excited to offer opportunities to celebrate the High Holidays, to connect with camp friends, and to learn and explore together as families. These programs are free and open to the community, so please feel free to invite your friends and family … especially those who may be interested in the Havaya experience.
We pride ourselves on creating welcoming, inclusive, values-based, and celebratory communities in each of our Havaya Summer Programs. This is possible only with a high level of hands-on supervision that is simply impossible in an online setting. Please note that all supervision responsibilities for individual participants during Havaya@Home sessions fall to those children’s parents or legal guardians. Similarly, parents are responsible for their child’s physical safety and cyber-security; we cannot guarantee the security or efficacy of Zoom, Facebook, or other online platforms that may be used during the course of the program. All live sessions will be recorded; participation in a session signifies the parent or legal guardian’s understanding and approval that photographs, video, or likenesses of their child may be used for promotional purposes. More details on our terms and conditions are available online. As with our in-person programs, we expect participants to stand up for themselves and their friends and take responsibility for their actions; we will not accept behaviors such as bullying, violence, repeated profanity, disrespect, or bigotry. We’re serious about being our best selves—it’s How We Be!
Camp Havaya is a truly extraordinary place—your kid will feel part of something bigger than themselves, and they’ll want to experience that magic year after year.
