Gladwin, Michigan - October 16 - October 23, 2024

Site Summary

This is the Season of Our JOY. You are invited to rejoice with us October 16 - October 23.

We are excited to announce our special guests this year are AviGayle and James O’Hare from Boston Massachusetts. This enthusiastic and talented couple are Hebraic teachers and Musicians. Their teachings include: Torah, Israel, and Life. You can find their frequent broadcasts on

We are also very Blessed this year to have a variety of Guest Speakers, Talented Musicians, Hebraic Dancing, Hebrew Class, and great Torah Studies.  Children and Teens are the Joy of our camp. We offer Crafts, Activities, and Bible Programs for them to enjoy.

So many Blessings have been showered on us as we Tabernacle together. Everyone especially values the close friendships that they have developed over the years. We have been hosting Sukkot for many years and love meeting new and old friends. This is a friendly laid-back group of 80 or more happy faces (up to 100 people on Sabbaths and we are expecting many more this year). The great turnout of adults, teens, and children is very awesome. We welcome you and believe that a stranger is just a friend you haven't met yet.
