Shabbat Camping Trip

June 7, 2013 @ 5:00 pm - June 9, 2013 @ 1:00 pm

East Bay Minyan invites you to a relaxing, inspiring, communal, educational, and just plain fun Shabbat camping trip! Join us for an all ages weekend replete with swimming, hiking, games, campfires, music, s’mores, singing, davening, learning, meditation, and lots of great food. Come build community, connect with friends, make new ones, and enjoy a wonderful outdoor Shabbat and Rosh Chodesh (new moon) immersed in EB Minyan community! To RSVP, just use this PayPal link. (Cost is $70 per person aged 13 and up, $25 per child aged 3-12.) Full details:

  • When: Evening of Friday, June 7 until the afternoon of Sunday, June 9.
  • Where: Del Valle Regional Park, adjacent to the beautiful Sunol Wilderness and just a one-hour drive from Berkeley.
  • Cost/RSVP: $70 per adult, $25 per child 3-12 years old, free for children 0-2. (If cost is a concern, please let us know.) Please use this PayPal link by Wed, June 5 to pay and reserve your spot! (After June 5, please email to see if we have space.)
  • We Provide: A campsite for two nights. Five full kosher meals with meat and veggie options. Drinks and refreshments the entire weekend. Activities, campfires, learning, games, music, and more. (Here’s the trip schedule.)
  • You Bring: Tents, sleeping bags, and transportation (all of which we can help with upon request). Plus guitars, drums, voices, and songs for the Saturday night campfire jam. (Here’s a packing list.)
  • Shabbat/Observance: Shabbat evening and morning services will follow the EB Minyan custom of accommodating both Egalitarian and Orthodox practice. Shabbat morning will include Torah study (but not a Torah service). Everyone’s degree of Shabbat observance is equally respected, and we fully accommodate those who are shomeir Shabbat. (There will be an eruv.)
  • Also: The campsite has showers and flush toilets! We are civilized, after all. ;-)
  • Contact: Daniel Shuldman and Shalom Bochner, camping@eastbayminyan.org.

(We would like to acknowledge our awesome Shabbat camping partner, Alma Retreats!)
