One of our first stops was one of our Reform Movement regional camps, Crane Lake Camp. We arrived at Crane Lake during snack time, when the entire camp comes together for a treat. We gathered for a few moments to share stories, reconnect, and eat delicious Brownies!
After we finished the brownies, a few of our older Crane Lake Campers took us on an informal tour of camp! It was so wonderful to hear about camp from their perspectives.
- Crane Lake sits on an active waterfront in a traditional New England style setting. The setting is very intimate—pedestrian pathways connect most of camp.
- Crane Lake has approximately 300 campers per session, spanning 3-10th grades.
- Campers spend their days at Crane Lake moving from activity to activity with their cabin group and counselor. Campers get to experience all that CLC has to offer through block scheduled programming each week.
- Students at Crane Lake Camp participate in and help to lead creative services, participate in a joyous Shabbat celebration, and learn experientially about Jewish culture, Israeli culture, and Jewish values.
We had a great visit and it was a great way to kick-off our road trip! Stay tuned tomorrow for a post about our visit to Camp Eisner—and next week for our visits to Tevya and Camp Young Judaea!
As always, if you have any questions about Crane Lake Camp or any of our other regional Jewish camps, please contact Hannah Richman and Brett Lubarsky!
