- Camp Micah is a traditional, Jewish, co-ed, overnight summer camp; home to approximately 250 campers ages 7-15 each session.
- Camp Micah is a private for profit camp, founded in 2001. As such, the cost for Camp Micah is higher than the cost of most of our other Regional camps. The facilities at Camp Micah are new and unlike the facilities at many other camps.
- Campers select their activities before arriving at camp. Each camper has a different weekly schedule carefully created to fit their needs.
- Judaism at Camp Micah is woven into daily life, but the Jewish presence feels less explicit to me at Micah than it does at many of the other Jewish camps that I have toured. There are no Judaic activities throughout the week, and while campers recite prayers before and after ever meal, the only services held at Camp Micah are on Friday night. While many counselors are Jewish, Micah also hires bunk counselors and specialists who are not Jewish.
During lunch, the camp Micah staff helped me to gather our TBE campers for a quick meeting and photo. Unfortunately, several of our TBE campers were off camp for the day for a hiking trip (Micah boasts a strong hiking program). It was Tie-dye Thursday, so many campers were sporting their most colorful outfits!
We also stopped in to see the arts and crafts building, which was divided into crafts and studio art sections.
