What is the religious observance at Family Camp at Yavneh?

Yavneh is a K’lal Yisrael camp so we have families from all the different observances. There will be a range of optional Shabbat services. Camp Yavneh is shomer Shabbat and our facilities are strictly kosher.

How does tefillot (prayer services) work?

For those who choose to participate in prayer services, there will be traditional minyan options daily. Additionally, there will be both a traditional and egalitarian option on Shabbat morning.

What will be the expectations of Shabbat observance?

While your style of your Shabbat observance is your personal choice, we ask that all guests are respectful of the shomer Shabbat environment in public spaces.

Is the food kosher?

Yes! A full-time mashgiach supervises our Glatt kosher kitchen. Special diets are accommodated. Buffet breakfast is served for 90 minutes in the morning. Lunch and dinner are family-style at times noted in the daily schedule.

What is the daily schedule?

There are fun and educational activities scheduled most of the day. You are welcome to attend as many or few as you wish. Kids have both camp programming with counselors and family programming at various times during the day. Take a look at last year’s schedule to get an idea.
