What is the Shabbat experience at Galil?

At Galil we offer a supportive Jewish cultural environment in which all our campers can thrive.  Shabbat is a true celebration of Jewish life at Camp Galil.  Each Friday afternoon, campers begin special preparations to greet Shabbat.  Before the traditional Shabbat dinner, one age group leads the camp in a Kabbalat Shabbat followed by Israeli singing and folkdancing.  Optional services are available.

On Saturday our campers enjoy a more relaxed experience in which they choose their activities — anything from playing music and reading to discussing current events and participating in sports.

Shabbat ends with a Havdalah service under the stars followed by musical, poetic, and comedic performances from our camper
