Packed to its capacity, Yeshivas Kayitz-Kingtson began its third year this summer season. When the new grounds were purchased, with the help of many friends and supporters, the overnight camp entered a whole new era, and the campus grounds anchored the Yeshivas Kayitz as a most sought after summer experience for talmidim of 8th Grade and Mesivta.
The camp is under the auspices of Oholei Torah, and its Board of Directors
Staff, faculty, administration, and talmidim together total over 220 people, and the Board of Directors of Oholei Torah are already planning expansion for future years. Many new features were added to the camp this year, including Central Air and heating unites in the two main Zals, and Dining Hall. An expanded Zal for 8th Grade, updated outdoor sports areas and new furniture in the bunks.
The talmidim have settled in learning sessions, shiurim and farbrengens making their summer experience a productive one with growth in learning and chassishishkeit. The campers have also had outings and trips, BBQs and special surprise meals and treats. One of the recent trips were paintball shooting and “Bounce on It.”
This year, coinciding with visiting day, there will be a special program and recognition to those members of the community who gave financial support in making the camp a reality. Building dedications will be unveiled, and awards will be distributed. The event will be held on Sunday, July 23rd, 29th of Tammuz.
Rabbi Yisroel Levertov, Director of Yeshivas Kayitz Kingston, expressed his appreciation to the staff members and head counselors, who are giving so much of themselves to the talmidim, making it a most memorable summer experience.
