Finally, there’s an alternative to camp.
Welcome to the Jewish UnCamp for independent-thinking Jewish high school girls, 15-18
Get ready for candid talk about the things that matter most with your new best friends from all around the world. Eye-opening Jewish learning. Creative workshops for the non-conformist in you. Outdoor trips for fun-lovers. Cornfields, cows and the mighty Mississippi. (did we mention it’s in Iowa?)
Go ahead, make this summer count.
What’s on the Agenda?
With over three thousand years of Jewish wisdom to tap into, it’s going to be an interesting few weeks. Find out about true love, Jewish medical ethics, the human psyche, the nature of the soul, what do Jews believe, why kosher, what do dreams mean, faith, free will, reincarnation, where was G-d during the Holocaust, what’s Shabbat for, what’s the key to happiness, what about other religions, why do bad things happen to good people…and more. No topic and no question is off limits.
This isn’t someone else’s agenda, it’s yours.
Mavericks, artistes and wild cards – from all over the world. That means you, if you’re between the ages of 15 and 18, as long as you’re female and Jewish. You don’t need any background in Jewish studies (just some genuine curiosity) and you don’t need to come with a friend because you’re going to make plenty when you’re with us. Check out our pics to see what that looks like.
In the very lovely town of Dorchester, Iowa, there are no skyscrapers, no malls, no airport traffic and lots of corn and cows. The stunning 315 acre property we’ll be staying on has a zipline, rappelling wall, tubing creek, Frisbee course, miles of gorgeous hiking, a student lodge and our very own open art studio. Not far: canoeing and biking. A little further: Walmart!
June 25-July 16, 2014
Be there. Or miss out and read about it in the Oskaloosa Herald.
What’s Art got to do with It?
Ceramics. Acrylics. Collage. Stained glass. Watercolor. Multi-media. Roll up your sleeves, make a mess and have a good time with it. Our art teacher has a philosophy about this. There’s wisdom to be gained from respecting the nature of each medium. Art helps us make choices; understand our emotional and spiritual processes; and identify personal limitations. When to take control, when to let go, and how to step back to behold the resulting beauty. Heady existential stuff. You’ll enjoy it.
Graphology and Face-Reading
Can someone really know you through your handwriting? Can you get to know yourself better? Can you ever change your personality? Stay tuned: we explore these and other mysteries at the Un-Camp.
Your mother didn’t make it but is that so bad? Everything is prepared with love by our cook (and whoever else wants to help out in the kitchen) and it’s kosher to Chabad standards.
Did we mention it’s all girls?
Nothing personal, guys.
