Everyone is excitedly anticipating JEA Camp Savannah 2018. Our brochures should be ready shortly. In the meantime, here's a quick taste of our weekly themes for this year!
Campers, get ready to buckle your seatbelts and start your engines as we speed through an action-packed week of fun! Work in teams to create zucchini and pinewood derby cars as you take it to the tracks for the Zucchini 500 and the Pinewood Derby Race. Turning into the middle of the week, visit the Clubhouse in Statesboro for arcade fun. Don't worry - on the final lap, refuel for a delicious Shabbat celebration!
Israel is turning the BIG 7-0 and JEA Camp Savannah is ready to celebrate by stopping by some popular Israeli cities. Campers will journey to Jerusalem to test their luck at attempting to climb Masada (Rock Wall). Venture off to Tel Aviv to sample some tasty cuisines and shop in the outdoor shuk market. Spend the night at the first camp sleepover for a lights-out overnight dance party. End the week with a special Shabbat lunch loaded with some of your favorite holiday traditions and flavors!
Calling all future super heroes! This week, we'll channel your inner super hero. To begin the week, campers will create their own cape, inspired by their super hero identity. Next, campers will challenge themselves with our ninja obstacle course. For inspiration, look to the guidance of the incredible family as Camp Savannah heads to the theater for a screening of "The Incredibles 2!" Campers need a recharge? We've got you covered with the Cartoon Brunch Shabbat!
1-2-3-4...who's going to win Color War? A JEA Camp Savannah favorite is back for another round of crazy competitions, food challenges, team building, Ruach Hasport (spirit of sportsmanship), and a Double Dare-themed obstacle challenge. Campers are invited to have fun with the Savannah Bananas as they host their 2nd annual Super Splash Day and baseball game. The week comes to a close as the Color War teams showcase their original songs, dances and cheers for the community, to determine who will win Color War 2018!
