Grow with Us
For Tweens & Teens
As chanichim (campers) mature, do does our camp program! Each kayitz (summer) at RDC is filled with new 'firsts' for our chanichim, and builds on their previous experiences in order to grow.
Below is the overview by edah (division):
Current 6th & 7th Grade
Etgar is a two-year program that begins to give your child leadership responsibilities at camp. Their weekly schedule is set up differently than the rest of the (age groups). They have two trips out of camp each week: One that is focused on tikkun olam, social action, and one that is just for fun.
Etgar chanichim (campers) have a 2-day, 1-night trip where they will explore the sights and sounds of the city. Previous locations have included Washington D.C. and Harrisburg/Lancaster County. Etgar chanichim serve as Maccabiah junior captains, helping to bring energy, ruach (spirit) and good sportsmanship to their teams. They are partnered with our younger edot (age groups) as “buddies’ and help them during t’fillot (prayers) and on special program days. They assist the tzevet (staff) in planning a component of Yom Yisrael.
