I went to Sternberg 2nd half for 5 years and this is my first summer not going. i agree w/ angel—Sternberg is the most amazing special and unique place on this planet!!! its such a great place in every way. There ARE very special people there—staff and campers. I can honestly say that I have met people in camp who have_changed_my_life. Serious. Everyone there is so real, friendly, and unbelievably accepting. It’s the sort of camp where (I feel) competition hardly exists, you can make friends with anyone—and you meet people from all over. I guess this goes for other camps as well, but in Sternberg, you especially meet people from all walks of life, which you don’t get everywhere. You can be who you are and feel comfortable being who you are. Aside from just giving you a fun summer, the program is designed to, for lack of a better word, teach important life skills. For example for some activities, working as a team is the only way you will be able to do something. Or other things require total trust. Others need leadership skills, quick thinking, …etc. the shiur program is outta this world. Not even what they give over, but who does…be prepared to be blown away!! The atmosphere in camp is so so special—carefree, easygoing, fun,ruachdik and full of achdus. I don’t know about a/o else, but I always came out of camp feeling so much fuller of kedusha and totally inspired in every way. it really "recharged my batteries" for the year. If you cant tell im the biggest fan and only because of circumstances out of my control im not going back.:( And, btw, staff is just as much fun. :):):) If you have any other specific questions just say the word!!

oh and one more thing--it IS very sporty, great if you love the outdoors. im pretty athletic and i absolutely loved the out-doorsy program. roughing it is one of the best parts! if you arent the sports type,tho, there is still plenty to do instead so dont get turned off if you you dont like actual sports.

yessssssssssssssssssssss go for heller!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! that and older were my 2 favesstttttt yrs!!
hwvr, it all depends on whether you're looking to grow or not. u have a lot of freedom and if u dont have friends around w/ u to have fun w/ it can be boring. also, its an environment thats rlly conducive to growth so if you're more for the structured activity and not so much for the chilling out, it mite not be for u...i B"H had an amazing time, but not e/o i know did...

but my fave part of heller??? the sups!!! they're the best!
