Community Shabbat CampOUT on the farm– July 8 – 10 

 Families, community members, and individuals are welcome to join us for the weekend to immerse in the natural world and connect with meaningful community and farm fresh food, with Shabbat preparation & celebration.  Enjoy the beauty of connecting with the earth, your food and rest as a form of cultural revitalization.  

This program comes at the end of the Valley Teva Camp week. We invite all participants to enjoy Shabbat (rest) together at the end of the camp week, and we welcome people of all ages to join us for a warm community camp immersed in nature.

There will be plenty of free time to explore the woods and river. We will share in family friendly Shabbat programming on Friday evening and Saturday morning.

We invite you to bring a craft, workshop, teaching, prayer, etc to share as we co-create this weekend.  Note in the registration if there is something you would like to share during the weekend, and we will confirm if we can make it happen.
