CHADAR OCHEL - NOURISHING OUR COMMUNITY Living in community is one of Judaism’s most fundamental values. Summer camp is the most effective place for young people to develop their competence, confidence and capacity to live in community. Summer camp transforms young Jewish lives and contributes profoundly to the building of strong Jewish identity and life-long connection to the Jewish community. The Chadar Ochel (dining hall) is the camp’s cornerstone in both its capacity to create community and encourage young people to participate fully in that community. Much of the fabric of the summer experience, the ruach of life at camp, is created in the communal environment of eating, singing and celebrating together around meals.

CONSTRAINTS OF THE CURRENT DINING HALL: Divides and limits the creation of community Space is so inadequate that camp cannot accommodate camper demand, despite having bed space and eating meals in two shifts Kitchen space is lacking - food preparation must be supplemented from the outside and the ability to meet special dietary needs is marginalized Food storage space and dishwashing operations are also critically limited producing a large negative impact on camp’s carbon footprint Above all, the camp’s capacity to build the fabric and the spirit of the camp experience is curtailed


THE CHADAR OCHEL WILL:

Strengthen the camp’s sense of community Unite the camp as one to fully enjoy the celebration of Shabbat Provide new opportunities for upper camp role models to guide younger campers

Allow for the creation and preparation of healthier food options Create the platform for new traditions and heightened camp spirit Generate greater opportunity and flexibility for the entire camp schedule Dramatically improve camp’s environmental impact Increase the camp’s capacity to serve an additional 100 campers each summer

CHALLENGE GRANT – THE TIME IS NOW We have an immediate opportunity to close this campaign. To date, $2.65 of the $3.5 million construction cost has been committed, including an $850,000 challenge fund – that gets us 76% of the way to our goal. That fund will match, dollar for dollar, each of the final $850,000 needed to break ground. Completion of the challenge campaign by April 30 will make the new Chadar Ochel available to Crane Lake campers for Summer 2014! Summer camp transforms lives! The new Chadar Ochel at Crane Lake will transform the camp experience. We invite you to be part of the transformation! Join us at the table as we create a new, vibrant future. Each camper, family and community that is part of the Crane Lake family will be transformed for generations to come.
