The Chabad of Holmdel has successfully concluded its first-ever “Winter Camp for Teens” program this Dec. 28-Jan. 1, 2010. The teen boys enjoyed a full week of programs and activities that featured trips to New York City, skiing in the Catskill Mountains and a wide array of hands-on educational programs.
The teenagers experienced daily activities including Ice Skating, Skiing and a most exciting tour of Crown Heights, New York. The Crown Heights trip took the participants through a visit to the Matzah Bakery, the world-renowned Jewish Children’s Museum, and lunch in Glatt Kosher Brooklyn Deli.
The campers had a session where they learnt how to make Charity boxes from a master carpenter. Each student brought home a beautiful olive-wood charity box which they have designed and hand-crafted.
For many of these students this is a unique opportunity to really explore and discover their Judaism and learn more about their Jewish roots, as during the rest of the year they attend Public schools.
