Make Camp Interlaken your entire family’s second home by experiencing Camp with your family! At the end of the camp season, bring your family to join us on Lake Finley! Family Camp begins on a Tuesday and lasts for five nights. Family Camp offers a day camp program in the morning for children while the parents get to experience all of Camp Interlaken’s favorite activities like waterskiing or the high ropes challenge course. In the afternoon, parents and their children will experience Camp Interlaken’s activities together! At night, our staff deliver great family evening programs like a carnival, a photo scavenger hunt, a family talent show, a mini maccabiah, and more. After the family evening programs are over, our counselors offer programming for camper-aged participants while younger kids get ready for bed. After 10pm, our staff begin shmira, guard, which resembles a babysitting program so the adults can participate in an adult evening program while enjoying a tasty nosh prepared by our food service staff.

Going to Family Camp we had no idea what to expect. I knew I wanted to go last summer and expose my five year old to the life at Camp Interlaken. But as the day approached I was a bit nervous as to what I was in for. From the moment we arrived, I knew I made the right choice. It was a special trip for our entire family. Enjoying all the activities, swimming, water skiing, water crafts, and zip lining; it turned out that the little things were the best. My son has never been able to walk out a door and play with friends. That freedom was a great experience. We all bonded closer during camp and had a lot of laughs. The staff was amazing and we enjoyed our time in a way that none of us will forget. Jordan describes it as his favorite memory of summer and wants to return next year. Thank you to everyone for a fabulous time and a wonderful family memory we will carry for years to come.
