Description

Campers used the Camp Lown Songster, written in Hebrew with pronunciation guides, when they sang after the Shabbat meal and on other occasions.

The camp for Jewish youths from age seven to high school, featured Hebrew lessons in the morning, camp activities the rest of the day, Kosher meals, and other events. Shabbat activities were important as were cultural experiences of being Jewish.
