Our philosophy

as a youth-led community

is built on the value of collective responsibility.

 

This means we see each person’s unique spark and understand that we all play a part in making the community what it is. We believe that when we create a community based on the values we want to see in society - equality, democracy, and interdependence - we become more able to bring light into the world.

Avodah

Working Together

We all work together to take care of camp. Avodah cultivates a sense of personal responsibility and pride in the place we call home for the summer - we see that camp is a place that really does belong to every single one of us.

Building a Loving, Supportive Community

Kehilah

Many activities are camp-wide or in mixed age groups and everyone gets to know every single person at camp. This creates a real sense of community and allows older campers to be role models and to support and guide younger campers.

Shabbat

Making Judaism Personal & Relevant

Shabbat at Mosh is an experience we all create together. Every week, each age group takes turns preparing a different aspect of Shabbat (creating the Oneg, singing a Kabbalat Shabbat song, presenting a blessing, setting up and decorating the dining hall.

Values-Based Experiential Education

Chinuch

Camp is a space to explore who we are as Jews in the United States, in Israel, and in the world around us.

 

Shared Resources

Kupa

Camp is a place where each person is valued equally. Modeled after kibbutzim, kupa is our "give what you can, take what you need” system that allows everyone to contribute to their kvutzah’s (age group) communal resources, according to what they are able. Kupa allows us to take care of each other and ensure that everyone’s needs are met.
