It’s not too late to join us for Rosh Hashanah at Surprise Lake. Camp is the perfect place to be for a great way to celebrate the Jewish New Year. Following the service, we host various activities, ensuring that everyone enjoys this important time of year. Find out more and join us!

Missing your Camp friends? Consider joining Jenn, one of our Assistant Camp Directors at one of the tri-state area Camper Catch-Up’s! Find more information on these events, and when there will be one in your area, here. The first one is Sunday, October 6th at Ample Hills Creamery in Brooklyn from 12 – 2pm.

Also on Sunday, October 6th, the SLC Alumni Association is hosting the 3rd annual Kickball Classic. Consider joining us if you’re over 21 and ready to have fun for a good cause. The game will take place at the Heckscher Ballfields #3 in Central Park (it’s best to enter on the west side between 59th and 66th). Click here to find out more.

We’ll be wrapping up our October fun with Friends & Family Hike Day. Join us for a wonderful fall day of hiking, foliage, new and old friends back at Camp. You can find the wide range of hike options, here. The fee for Family Hike Day is $25 per person or $100 per family. We’ll be providing breakfast, snacks, and a guided hike and all proceeds will benefit Surprise Lake Camp scholarships!

Camp hosted J-Teen Leaders this past weekend. In their short 16 hours with us, nearly 50 teens organized improv games, made s’mores around a campfire, packed boxes of donations for people affected by Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas, and performed acts of community service at Camp! These awesome leaders spent their afternoon weeding our garden, raking and clearing brush from Unit D, and putting a coat of paint on D Garage, where Mainside gathers for Jewish Life & Learning.

Countdown to the Summer of 2020:

275 days!
