The Canteen is a tribute to all things Jewish sleepaway camp. Hosted by the Foundation for Jewish Camp (FJC), this blog is written by campers, alumni, parents, and camp professionals and is a place to talk about parenting, camp fun, projects, crafts, recipes, and more – all tied back to Jewish holidays, traditions and, of course, camp!
When the weather is cold and damp, the camp season seems incredibly far away. That’s why Hanukkah is the perfect time for summer camp inspired gifts. Check back every day for a new camp inspired gift!
1. For your camper whose favorite activity is Arts & Crafts
For so many campers, Art & Crafts is the activity they most look forward to. It is always their first choice and their first stop during free time. Keep the spirit of camp in all of their artwork during the year with a set of colored pencils that look like twigs.
