Activities at Camp Hatikvah, Miriam and Schecter range from outdoor activities like hiking, swimming, and canoeing to religious celebrations and moral education programs. There are also special events at each of the camps. At Hatikvah, campers participate in a three-day competition inspired by the Olympic-like Maccabiah Games held in Israel. At Miriam, theme days involve elaborate decorations, games, and educational programming. Young people at all three camps celebrate Shabbat, the Jewish day of rest, by dressing in nice clothing, eating a traditional meal, and participating in Israeli dancing.
