Mother Daughter Weekend

Calling all moms, grandmas, aunts, and girls currently in grades K-10! Join us for our annual Mother-Daughter Family Weekend, April 13-15. Register here.

Moms, escape to the Berkshires with your daughters for the weekend! Bring grandmas and aunts as well! We’ll begin on Friday afternoon at 5:30 and welcome Shabbat camp-style, with a lively, kid-friendly musical service, Shabbat dinner, song session and Israeli dancing. On Saturday, after another kid-friendly Shabbat experience, we’ll enjoy crafts, sports, yoga, cooking, dance and more. Weather permitting, we’ll also be outside playing ball, hiking, and challenging ourselves on our ropes course. While the girls are cared for by our superstar staff, there’ll be special opportunities for moms to socialize with one another. We’ll say our good-byes at 11:00 on Sunday morning.
