Wellbeing

In today’s ever-changing and fast paced world, it is more important for us as educators and facilitators to emphasize our campers’ wellbeing. At KimamaHalfmoon we strive to be a safe place that promotes individuality, self-expression, and a rare opportunity to slow down, disconnect from screens and connect to one another. From the obvious and practical like health and nutrition, to those less apparent, in-between moments that can mean the world to a child or adolescent, we are there and we care, every step of the way.

NUTRITION

Say goodbye to soggy grilled cheese and hello to a range of fresh veggies with a Mediterranean touch. Our Israeli chef’s imagination, combined with the fresh and local produce of the Berkshires yields the tastiest results. Every single meal at Kimama Halfmoon is as colorful as the dining hall itself, and each meal has variety that speaks to every dietary restriction. A wholesome and nutritious meal is key to the Kimama Halfmoon lifestyle and we can guarantee you will not find another camp kitchen like ours.

HEALTH

A healthy kid is a kid that can learn and grow. Our stocked health center and 24 hour on-site health staff is here to ensure campers are taken care of. Kids that need daily care can be sure that their staff is on it. And for the moments that inevitably occur - whether it be scrapes and scars or fevers and flus, we are here to care for, support, and most importantly, make our campers feel safe through it all. 

STAFF

Our staff is the key to our campers’ wellbeing experience. Our counselors come from all facets of life to offer guidance, encouragement, and new perspectives to our campers, enriching every activity and those even more important in-between moments. Trained in and ready to handle whatever comes their way, they are well versed in detecting issues, and handling them accordingly. Our counselors are here to counselor, teach and guide campers through the tough moments that adolescence may inevitably bring.

ACTIVITIES

Seamlessly embedded into our programming are activities that promote introspection and wellbeing. Not just through yoga, gardening, sports, and art, but through being in nature, connecting to surroundings, and daring to try new things, campers explore, experience, and broaden their horizons at every waking moment.

SCREEN FREE LIVING

At Halfmoon, we view the camp experience as an opportunity to be fully present, and a massive part of that is relinquishing cell phones and screens in order to fully engage in camp life and make meaningful connections with the people right beside us. Detoxing digitally from the stimulation of our screens is an incredible way to practice mindful living and ultimately leads to a quality of experience that seldom exists in the outside world.
