About Camp Mesorah
For 23 years, Camp Mesorah has been known as a camp where values, midot, ruach and fun meld together into one memorable experience. Campers leave the summer feeling more confident, motivated and with a greater sense of self-esteem.
Camp Mesorah has merged with Sportstar Academy, to offer the boys and girls the most cutting edge programming in sports, arts, dance, aerobics and much more. Our hand-picked professional staff is the key to giving the campers the time of their lives!
A typical daily schedule includes Torah learning, swim/lake time, various sports games, wilderness/archery, art, and exciting night activities. Sports leagues, tournaments, Night Leagues, Zumba, water aerobics, cooking, dance, banana boating, bar-b-ques, and trips are planned to the last detail.
It is the camp’s commitment to bring together dedicated Rabbeim, camping professionals, educators, athletes and counselors who will serve as role models – in and out of the bunk, fields, and shiur room. The administration spends the winter months handpicking the staff and making sure they are perfect matches with the Mesorah family.
Campers love the Camp Mesorah trips which include one major trip per session provide campers with incredible memories. All trips are planned to the last detail to make sure your child will have an exciting, fun, and memorable off-campus experience. Teens experience a 3 day/2 night extravaganza in the second session.
The evidence of Camp Mesorah’s success shows from the campers who return year after year and eventually become staff members.
