At Moshava Ba’ir we offer a fully loaded sports program. Sports activities take place both indoors in our state of the art gym, as well as outdoors in the numerous fields on campus. Daily schedules are developed to balance indoor to outdoor activities, as well as with bunks’ preferences in mind— providing more sports for our sports-oriented campers. Our sports program is comprised of skills and drills along with games and scrimmages. Our sports staff are all well-trained to teach proper form and ensure a fun time for all!
Our sports include:
Basketball, Hockey, Dodgeball, Baseball, Kickball, Archery, Track & Field, Volleyball, Football, Tennis, & Fencing.
Every day, the children learn Torah in a very fun, experiential way from a warm, professional teacher during their 30 minute chinuch activity. What makes our chinuch program special is not only what takes place during that time, but our ability to extend those ideas, concepts, and values into other daily camp activities such as in arts and crafts, woodworking, and STEM.
The end result? Children building meaningful connections to Torah ideas and values in fun hands-on ways in more than just the classroom setting.
This approach helps inspire many children, from a young age, to continue their involvement with Bnei Akiva, often going to a Bnei Akiva sleep-away camp, and ultimately emerging as leaders and advocates with strong Jewish values and unwavering devotion to Israel.
Camp trips are an exciting and significant part of Moshava Ba’ir. Aside from breaking up the week with exciting adventures, a camp trip also lends itself to wonderful learning and growth opportunities. Children learn how to safely travel in a group, be responsible for themselves and their friends and of course have a great time! Of course, all trips are well-supervised and the staff are well-trained to ensure safety as a priority.
Trips vary by age group; some of our yearly trips include: Local Hikes, Overnight, Treehouse World, Turkey Hill and Bowling.
In addition to the regular programming, trips, and theme days, we also have exciting events that take place throughout the summer.
On Fridays, we get ready for Shabbat by coming together for oneg Shabbat with treats, singing, and dancing.

For many children, Moshava Ba’ir is where they learn to swim! We provide ongoing communication with parents and a mid-summer update on their child’s swimming progress.
