About Camp Moshava
Habonim Dror Camp Moshava is a unique Jewish camping experience where children (ages eight to seventeen) engage in high-spirited, creative activities that challenge their minds and feed their souls.
In a kibbutz-like environment dedicated to inclusion and social justice, campers develop a strong and personal connection to Israel and the Jewish people, gain leadership skills and self-confidence, form friendships that last a lifetime and have FUN!
At Camp Mosh, campers can be themselves! We believe that a thriving community is one that embraces and celebrates diverse identities -- age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, nationality, religion, physical ability and socioeconomic status. Our All Gender housing and bathroom options, Asepha Klalit (our weekly community meeting) and the gender inclusive Hebrew we use are just a few of the ways we empower campers to be their truest selves! Because of the individual, the community is stronger, because of the community, the individual is stronger.
Serving the mid-Atlantic region for over 80 years, Moshava is located in Harford County on two hundred sixty seven acres of pristine Maryland wilderness. Our campgrounds feature a private lake, athletic fields, swimming pools, hiking trails, organic garden, river, low ropes course, nature preserve and kosher kitchen. Whether they are acting in skits around the campfire, tie-dying, playing softball, discussing Jewish history, doing community service projects or getting messy from head to toe in an epic paint fight, our campers participate in a full range of creative, athletic, Judaic, fun and thought-provoking activities.
One key to our success is our unique "youth leading youth" formula. Grounded in our historic and dynamic partnership with Habonim Dror North America, Camp Mosh is one of six North American camps sponsored by the Habonim Dror International Youth Movement and is affiliated with Na'amat USA and Ameinu (formerly the Labor Zionist Alliance).
Camp Mosh truly "walks the walk" of youth leadership by empowering our talented counselors to plan and implement all aspects of our educational program.
