    Overnight Family Camping Trip Information


    We all need to eat and it's more fun to do it together! At this event, everybody is responsible for their own food. However, we encourage you to connect with other participants to create communal meals potluck-style. When everybody shares, nobody goes hungry, especially in a Jewish family.

    Don’t forget about drinking water! We suggest two gallons per family.

    The OFJCC will provide ingredients for s'mores, wine and firewood.
