New and Prospective Camper Weekend

Saturday, October 15 - Sunday October 16

For Current 2nd to 5th graders

URJ Eisner & Crane Lake Camps are once again offering a fun weekend at camp for children who are considering camp for Summer 2023! It's an opportunity for new and prospective campers to get a taste of what a summer at Eisner and Crane Lake Camps is all about. We'll play outdoors, enjoy some of our favorite camp activities, and make new friends. Plus, we’ll get to spend the night in one of our heated cabins at Eisner Camp!

We'll begin with parent (siblings are welcome too) and camper tours at 10:00 am on Saturday at Eisner Camp in Great Barrington, MA and end our action-packed weekend with a 2:00 pm parent tour and 3:30 pm goodbye at Crane Lake Camp in West Stockbridge, MA, only 12 miles away.

After breakfast on Sunday, the children and staff will head over to Crane Lake Camp for another action-packed day. This way, campers will experience the magic of both camps.

At each camp, you’ll get to meet our directors and some of our superstar summer staff. On Saturday, at Eisner, parents are invited to stay after the 10:00 tour for a short family Sukkot activity. On Sunday, at Crane Lake, parents are invited to stay for a snack after the 2:00 tour.

All prospective campers and family members joining for the tours must be up to date with their COVID-19 vaccinations.

Cost: $200. Includes all program fees, meals, lodging, linens, and activities. If you register for camp by January 1, 2023, $100 of the cost of the weekend will be credited to your 2023 summer tuition.
