Camp CAR

May 26-29, 2016
7:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Camp CAR is a year-long partnership with Cooke Magnet Elementary School in Waukegan, IL. NFTY teens volunteer in Waukegan throughout the year, and then welcome elementary school campers to a weekend planned and led by NFTYites at OSRUI. Campers who otherwise wouldn't get to experience summer camp have the opportunity to meet teen counselors eat three nutritious meals a day, and enjoy activities such as music, hiking, arts and crafts, cooking, and a variety of sports and team building activities – all for free!
