Women’s weekend set for Oct. 22-24 at Camp Mountain Chai

SAN DIEGO (Press Release)Dynamic, energizing, stimulating, heimish and lots of fun – that’s how women have described their  weekend at camp — Camp Mountain Chai.

The 4th Annual Women’s Weekend is coming up October 22, 23 and 24.

The $225 fee includes a comfortable charter bus to the camp in an idyllic setting in the San Bernardino mountains; healthy and delicious kosher cuisine;  workshops; social activities, games, yoga, crafts, hikes and a ropes course, and singing and dancing.  A highlight will be spirited, inspiring Shabbat services with Rabbi Lenore Bohm.

Workshops will include yoga with Lee Fowler Schwimmer, (Yoga Through Jewish Eyes); Torah study with Rabbi Bohm; book discussion; Israeli Jazzercize; music (bring instruments); chanting; spiritual nature hike; creating mezzuzot and more. The outdoor havdalah service has been an especially moving part of the program.

“Happy campers” have been all ages (18 and over), including women in their 70s who never went to camp before (and keep coming back); mother/daugher pairs, sisters, and even out-of-town friends and family.

For anyone worried about whether camp is too rustic for them, the cabins are carpeted and heated (it may be pleasantly crisp in October), and there are plenty of electrical outlets if you really need to plug in.

The bus will leave from the La Jolla JCC at noon Friday and will depart from Camp 12:30 pm Sunday, returning to the JCC about 2:30-3 pm.

The Women’s Weekend Committee Cochairs are Roz Brotman and Diana Lerner.
