Abbie has been at Camp Ahava since she’s 4 years old and now at age 13, refuses to leave! Kobie has been welcomed in the building since the day he was born and couldn’t wait to become a camper. Now he is the best camper in bunk 1. The counselors are extraordinary! They go the extra mile. Camp Ahava is a community camp that welcomes everyone. Send your kids, I send mine!

I just wanted to send you a quick note to tell you again how much my kids enjoyed being in Camp Ahava this summer. They still talk about it! Over the weekend, they were singing the songs from their color war teams and talking about some of the field trips they went on. They really had a great time and are looking forward to coming back next year. Thank you again for your kindness and professionalism. I really appreciated all of the extra effort and attention you paid to keep my children safe. I felt very comfortable having them at your camp. I just had to share with you that they are still talking about it even several months later!
