The Importance of Camp

The Rebbe said the following:

Camp Can be Better than School

Children can gain tremendously in Torah and Yiddishkeit in a summer camp—even more so than in their Chedorim, Talmud Torahs, Yeshivos Ketanos, and so on—because they spend the entire day in an atmosphere of Torah and Yiddishkeit, and they do not get any outside influence from the streets. This continues not for one day, nor for three days, nor for three weeks—but for a long period of time!

(Shabbos Parshas Balak 5745)

 

The Campsite

The campsite includes both the buildlng adjacent to and the Chabad House itself.

Gothenburg is known to be the greenest city in Europe, and our campsite is nestled at the foot of a mountain called "The jaw of the lion," at the heart of miles of parkland, forest, and nature reserves, perfect for hiking etc.

There is a private entrance into the beautiful, award-winning Botanical Gardens 'Botaniska', with a stunning array af flowers, charming walks, and waterfalls.

The Chabad House is set an a large plece af land with a playground, a large patio for outdoor meals, area for campfires, and plenty of private space for outdoor activities.

There is a swimming pool on the premises.

 

Gothenburg

In 1940, the Frierdiker Rebbe left Europe on the Swedish ship named "The S.S. Drottingholm" on the 27th of Adar Rishon, from the port in Gothenburg, only a 10-minute drive from the campsite.

In 1991, the Rebbe sent the first Shluchim in Scandinavia to Gothenburg, Sweden.

 

Gothenburg, is an ideal place for a camp!

The clean, fresh air & pure water have earned lt the name of "the last green lungs of the world."

Gothenburg is also called the heart of Scandinavia, and is one of the greenest cities in Europe.

Surrounded by peaceful nature, the quiet air is full of the sweet sound of birdsong.

The camp is located only a 10-15 min. drive from sea & boat rides, malls, amusement park, bowling and go-carting and in the heart of miles of parkland and forest.
