Facilities and Location
Habonim Dror Camp Moshava is located on 267 acres of rolling hills in Northern Maryland. We have a lake and large wooded tracts of land. Younger campers stay in wooden cabins, while our older campers live in large platform tents. Campers use bathouses with hot water and electricity. All Gender bathrooms are available for staff and campers.
At Camp Mosh, we house campers according to gender identity and where they will feel most comfortable living at camp. We have been offering all gender housing to campers our older campers (rising 9th, 10th and 12th graders) since 2017. All gender housing is a tzrif (cabin) or ohel (tent) that houses chanichimot (campers) from one shichva (division/unit) who identify as gender non-binary, genderqueer, agender, gender non-conforming, gender fluid, transgender and cisgender allies.
Meals are shared in our spacious kosher dining hall. Camp Mosh follows kashrut dietary laws and offers vegetarian, vegan, gluten free and dairy free options. Our kitchen staff prepares delicious, healthy meals and snacks and is trained to accommodate most food allergies (contact us for details).
Other facilities include an arts and crafts building, a library and a large covered activities pavilion. We also have a new health center for children who may need medical attention and special TLC.
Moshava's beautiful lake is used for canoeing and campers love tubing on Deer Creek which flows through the camp property. We have two swimming pools, a ropes course and secluded camp sites for in-camp, outdoor camping. .
Serpentine Barrens are a grassland/savanna ecosystem found in extremely limited distribution worldwide. They are especially uncommon and endangered on the east coast of North America. The defining factor in the environment is serpentinite rock, created and pushed to the surface ages ago by plate tectonic movement and the heaving and shifting of the ancient sea floor. Current conditions are threatening flora and fauna native to the serpentine barrens on the Habonim Dror Camp Moshava property. The site has eleven Maryland plant species of concern, including three species classified as threatened or endangered. Armed with a restoration and management plan, Camp Moshava is determined save them!
