Activities at camp vary both in substance and content, ensuring variety to maximize each camper’s experience. Appropriate time is provided for self-care, rest and personal reflection. At different points throughout the day, campers will interact with their cabin, unit and the entire camp community.

Carnival Jousting

Cabin Activities: During a typical day at CMC, campers participate in five activity periods. Three of these activity periods are Cabin Activity periods in which each cabin is scheduled into one of the specialty program areas in camp, and attends that specialty program together as a cabin. This allows every camper to participate in each of our specialty activities at least once per session at camp.

Chugim: Two periods each day campers participate in Chugim (electives). These electives allow for campers to take a deeper-dive into their preferred activity areas. We invite our staff to create innovative and unique skill-based Chugim from which the campers choose. Each Chug (elective) lasts approximately 4 days, allowing campers to receive 2 Chugim per week, and 4 total per session.

Our Activities

Evening Programs: Most evening programs are done by unit, and are planned by the staff within each of the units. Staff in each unit divide into small group activities that combine fun with meaningful, substantive Jewish content. Popular unit evening programs include getting to know your counselors, messy night, Bar/Bat Mitzvah night, Harry Potter night, treasure hunts, themed dance parties and Jews Cruise at the pool.
