Elective Choices

Tevya offers a wide variety of activities so you will find your favorite place to shine, whether on the land, in the water or on the stage. Every camper’s schedule includes swimming, boating, outdoor learning, athletics and arts & crafts, plus shira (singing) and rikud (Israeli dancing). You can also try out for inter-camp sports teams. In addition, everyone gets to personalize their Tevya experience through elective choices. Signup takes place online, before camp begins, so that parents and campers can make choices together.
