Bar Mitzvah at Sleepaway Camp

Bar Mitzvah at Sleepaway Camp

The Silvert family had a very casual outdoor celebration which took place the week before day camp began at the JCC Camps. Their entire service and celebration took place in one location with full use of the camp’s fantastic facilities including swimming, boating, volleyball, water trampoline & other fun floating activities. The JCC also has great rain options with lots of closed buildings and covered pavilions which thankfully they didn’t need.

Ben’s service took place on the camp grounds. The event took place on a Monday, so there was no issue with music, driving, photos, etc., as there would have been for this family on a Saturday

Guests enjoyed many of the fun activities available at the camp. The beautiful woodsy camp grounds gave it a relaxed and fun feel

Silvert food

They had lighter breakfast fare for kids (waffles, French toast, croissants & eggs), and a classier menu for adults (fish, Portobello burgers etc., with both menus open to all)

 

Silvert dancing

The Klez Dispensers provided the music. They played a combination of Jewish, Klezmer, Israeli and Jazz music. Everyone loved them and some guests even ordered CD’s

 

Some Mom Adive From Cindy

Mitzvah Mom Cindy has some advice for our readers: “Start early, prioritize, delegate as much as you can. Get advice from other moms. Try to stay focused on what’s important. Don’t let too many chefs in the kitchen regarding unimportant decisions such as door prize or menu.” For their sign-in: “We made a book of Ben and his friends and cousins at Shutterfly.com for people to look at and sign-in with a message for Ben. We did this instead of a slide show/montage. The quality of the book was excellent.”
