Bonim Travel Camp
The Bonim Travel Camp builds character and positive social skills, along with a strong Jewish identity, through expertly planned educational, recreational, and cultural experiences. The Bonim team starts their journey with 20 days exploring Costa Rica and ends with a delicious trip to Hershey, PA. This extremely popular program, for campers entering 10th & 11th grades, seamlessly combines community service, camp programming, and exciting trips throughout the summer.
PURA VIDA! Bonim campers have the chance of a lifetime to spend 20 incredible days with their best friends in Costa Rica, enjoying the Costa Rican meaning of "Pure life!" aka "Pura Vida!"
During the first week of the session your camper will spend their days reuniting with old friends and building new connections at Camp Laurelwood while preparing for their trip. Throughout the day, Bonim campers have the opportunity to choose their own daily schedule as well as participate in camp wide evening activities.
In Costa Rica, campers will spend each day exploring the vast rainforests of the country and experiencing all of the activities and adventures Costa Rica has to offer! Plus, our campers have the unique opportunity to participate in meaningful community service projects where they can give back to the local Costa Rican community.
