The Maccabi Games are a series of athletic and artistic competitions for Jews throughout the world. For the first time ever, Camp TEKO will host its very own "Maccabi Games!" Campers will learn about the history of the real Maccabi games and will participate in their very own TEKO style activities.
Tzofim (Scouts) – Entering grades K - 2
Tzofim is designed for the younger camper with an emphasis on forming friendships and trying everything TEKO has to offer. From boating to music to omanut (arts & crafts), your child will come home each day talking excitedly about the day’s activities. This is a great opportunity for kids to learn new skills, explore campgrounds, surrounding nature and develop new relationships.
Giborim (Heroes) – Entering grades 3 - 6
For first-timers or long-time TEKO campers, Giborim is the program where kids can build upon their current skills and discover new talents in different areas such as omanut (arts & crafts), swimming, boating, sports, music and teva (nature). Every Giborim camper has the opportunity to stay at Camp TEKO for a one-night overnight. This popular experience is a highlight for many campers and can be a great stepping stone for a future of overnight camping.
Chalutzim (Pioneers) – Entering grades 2 - 6
Chalutzim campers spend the first two weeks of the session at day camp getting to know their cabin group and attending chugim (activities) such as omanut (arts & crafts), teva (nature), swimming, boating, music and sports. The third week of the session is a week-long overnight stay at camp. Campers and staff experience a lovely Shabbat together with the beauty of nature and friendship all around them. Overnight counselors receive additional training and are excited to plan new and creative evening programs as well as the camp favorites like Capture the Flag and Wells Fargo. Special weekend fun, color wars and meaningful cabin activities are designed to bond campers and to create lasting friendships - an overnight experience to remember.
