CAMP ISABELLA FREEDMAN Jewish Summer Camp for Active Adults 55+
July 8-14 & July 15-21, 2019 (Come for one week or two!)
Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center â€¢ Falls Village, CT
A Vacation Unlike Any Other Join us in the Berkshires and enjoy four hundred acres of summer fun as you rekindle body, mind, and spirit. Isabella Freedman offers good ol’ fashioned summer camp fun along with spiritual depth that adds resonance to the experience. Enjoy grown-up amenities too, like air-conditioning and Happy Hours. Take a boat out on the lake, go for an afternoon swim in the pool, visit the animals (and the vegetables) on our farm – Camp Isabella Freedman has bountiful natural riches! But there’s so much more to enjoy and to share. Listen to informative and inspiring lectures, watch memorable films, join in lively discussions, sing and dance your heart out, and of course roast marshmallows at the lakeside firepit as the moon rises. ARTS & CRAFTS puts a sophisticated spin on camp creativity: enjoy fused glass, silk painting, beading, painting, and collage. You’ll make exquisite objects to treasure or gift with pride. MOVEMENT AND MINDFULNESS classes will have you doing Torah Yoga, Tai Chi, Zumba, water aerobics, mindful stretch, meditation, and folk dance classes. You’ll move your body and still your mind. A week or two at Camp IF can change you and enrich your well-being for the rest of the year. HIKE on your own or join daily guided hikes – from gentle walks to challenging climbs – on our nature trails, the Appalachian Trail, and in local towns in a region that was called the “Arsenal of the Revolution.” At our LECTURE SERIES, CLASSES, AND DISCUSSION GROUPS you can explore social activism expressed in the Broadway musical, journey through Jewish music, consider men’s struggle for intimacy, explore the women of the Torah, learn about Jewish Renewal, examine current events, and develop creative writing skills. You’ll be intellectually stimulated by both presenters and fellow campers.
