Summer Programs

Just 30 minutes from Kalamazoo, MI and 2.5 hours from both Chicago, IL and Detroit, MI, Camp Tavor is located on a beautiful private lakefront along Lake Kaiser in Three Rivers, MI. Our camp property includes a beach and lake swimming area, swimming pool, sports fields, arts and crafts and music facilities, a lakeside amphitheater, numerous hiking trails that connect the many shtachim (living areas), and a variety of indoor and outdoor gathering spaces to host stimulating, enriching, and varied daily activities.


Check out our glossary page for an explanation of the intentional shift from chanichim to chanichimot!

Each camper lives in a shetach (living area), organized by grade in school. Within each shetach (living area), chanichimot (campers) sleep with about 4-6 of their peers and 1-2 madrichimot (counselors) in either ohelim (large, canvas tents with a wooden or cement platform) or tzrifim (cabins).  In addition to the group of madrichimot (counselors) with each shichvah (age group), a mashatz (supervisor) provides additional support and supervision to each group. Each shetach includes a bath and shower house and each shichvah (age group) has its own moadon (community gathering area) for group activities and to encourage community building.
