Visiting day in Yeshivas Kayitz Kingston was much more than that when parents drove up to see their sons.
The day was a fun filled day of excitement, fun, and really a great experience for all the families who joined the 120 campers and staff of Yeshiva Kayitz Kingston. Being in close proximity to Crown Heights and the Catskills region, almost all the parents came with their families to visit their son’s overnight camp. For most of the parents it was their very first time seeing the new camp grounds, and they were amazed at the vastness and sheer beauty of the camp grounds and buildings.
The grounds include over 120 acres, with 30 various buildings and cottages, lakes, air conditioned beis medrashim for both divisions, Dining Hall, game rooms and a large modern pool.
The camp grounds also boasts sports fields and outdoor areas including hockey, tennis, volleyball, baseball, football and soccer.
Providing a positive and exciting summer experience for grades 8 and mesivta age bochurim, this year has been one of the most successful years they have had yet. Under the leadership of Rabbi Yisroel Levertov, Camp Director, the campers have enjoyed shiurim, farbrengens, outings, BBQ’s, sports activities, and good wholesome meals with a great and devoted staff who have spent their summer giving their very best to the campers.
An addition to this year’s camp was a newly built canteen, which is well stocked and a delight to the campers. Head Counselors Moti Wilschansky (Mesivta) and Mendel Weunsch (Mechina) were on hand to meet the parents, as well as the many staff and faculty. They made themselves available to answer any questions the parents had and explain how the camp runs and what their sons were learning.
The visiting day activities included boat rides on the camp lakes, tours of the campgrounds and time to get to know the staff and counselors. A special activity and outing was planned for those campers who did not have family visits.
“I’ve sent many of my children to overnights camp, but never have I been so impressed with the staff and counselors as I am of Yeshivas Kayitz Kingston. They are so devoted and gave my son a complete experience, both B’gashmius and also B’ruchnius” one parent said as he summed up his thoughts.
Rabbi Levertov thanks the Oholei Torah Administration for their support and efforts in building the camp to where it is today. “Rabbi Joseph Rosenfeld, together with the Oholei Torah Board Members Avrohom Lokshin and Shalom Ber Rabkin have devoted tremendous energy, time and financial backing in founding and building Yeshivas Kayitz Kingston to one of the most sought after camps today available for our community”
