2014 KINUS CHANGES Print E-mail

There will be only one, combined Kinus this year.  There will be programming for Cub Scouts, Webelos Scouts and Boy Scouts, and if there is sufficient demand, for Girl Scouting groups from Daisies through Seniors.  (HINT: The Kinus Committee has more Boy Scouting leaders than Girl Scouting leaders. We can use help with Girl Scouting programming!)

The 2014 Kinus will be held at Camp Winnebago in Rockaway, NJ, due to ongoing construction at Camp No-Be-Bo-Sco.  Directions have been posted.

Because of space considerations, attendance will be strictly limited this year, and applications will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis.  Please see the registration application for details.

Kinus Date: May 23-26, 2014

Where do great childhood memories come from? They come from doing something that's fun, but challenging. Something where you meet people who leave a lasting impression on you. That's what the New Jersey Kinus is all about.

Every year, hundreds of kids and their parents come to the New Jersey Kinus. They come from all over the Northeast and beyond. They come here to learn about camping, the beauty of the outdoors, and the dozens of fun sessions that we offered for the past 39 years. Last year, we gave sessions on computers, astronomy, folklore, and photography to name just a few. We led the kids on hikes up mountains and over hills. We taught them how to shoot a bow and arrow. And without the kids realizing it, we taught them respect and good citizenship.

And their parents? They enjoyed the camaraderie of the other adults who wanted to see their kids have fun and grow. They enjoyed the sessions of Jewish learning that we provided on Shabbat. They also enjoyed participating in the camping and doing the same sessions their kids enjoyed.

And, you don't have to know your woodsy lore. That's our job. We're here to make your Kinus experience pleasant. We provide kosher meals and Orthodox and Egalitarian services throughout the entire Kinus. Enjoy walking through the woods, staying up late to look at the stars through a telescope, or simply take in the peaceful atmosphere for a nice Shabbat nap.

Register now, and come May, we'll see you there.
