Innovative Camp Curriculum Teaches Campers Via Video

For the third year, CKids of Merkos Suite 302 is offering a seven-week camp curriculum, prepared and ready for counselors to give over. The lessons are 30-35 minutes long but now include a new feature: a video clip with a dynamic teacher, Rabbi Berel Paltiel, explaining the concepts—so you don’t have to.

Also included is an interactive game, related story and a practical mitzvah to focus on. Take a look at a sample lesson here.

“We’re trying to make it simpler for counselors to impart the lessons,” says CKids director Rabbi Zalman Loewenthal. “This curriculum will ensure that the campers are really learning something practical in Yiddishkeit every day.”

To date, there are 160 camps using the curriculum and the feedback has been positive.

“Day camps are changing children’s lives,” says Merkos Vice Chairman Rabbi Moshe Kotlarsky. “And while the fun and activities are a major part, it’s so important to give over real Torah knowledge and educate the children on the foundations of Yiddishkeit. And we’re taking care of it for you.”
