Children are placed by grade in tribes (after the Tribes of Israel) and units – boys and girls are separated into tribes. As children grow, they are challenged by new activities and opportunities within the camp setting. The units are:
- Lil’ Chai (Kindergarten): This unit is specially designed for Camp Chai’s youngest campers with many opportunities for growth. Mornings are filled with swim lessons, games and more both inside and out while after lunch we settle down and do more indoor activities.
- Adat Chaverim (1st Grade): This unit is created to make the experience a growing one. Independence is gained through fun and choices of activities.
- Adat Shalom (Grades 2-3): These campers are ready for more choices and opportunities. In Shalom, campers help with tribe planning and can choose “Chugim – Specialties.”
- Adat Giborim (Grades 4-6): Campers choose a morning focus from theatre to creative arts to sports to technology/science. The afternoons will be spent in tribe activities and fun.
