Covid Protocols

  • A negative Covid antigen test must be sent to [email protected] by 9 am on Mar. 24th to get on the bus or attend the retreat with the teen's name on the e-mail and should be administered within 24 hours of getting on the bus or arriving at camp. (Test kits will be made available to families the week before the retreat if needed.)
  • If a teen has symptoms or might be ill, please have them stay home and inform our Midrasha office. You will be refunded for the weekend minus a $25 administrative fee.



Midrasha retreats are a great way to destress from life, chill with friends, be out in nature, and disconnect from the world. Trust us, you won't want to miss it! See you there!
