May 6, 1934

With the arrival of Spring every child begins to long for the simple life of the out-of-doors. The Modin Camps, situated in the cool fragrant woods of Maine, strive to satisfy this longing.

A plentiful program of camp athletics occupies most of the campers’ day. By a balancing of the athletic program however, free rein is given to the child’s enthusiasm without detriment to health.

What most characterizes Camp Modin however, is a unique program of Jewish living. In the short morning services in outdoor “synagogues,” at the table, around the camp fire a fine spirit of Jewish life is felt and made evident. Brief talks on current topics and Jewish events. Hebrew is taught to those who request such instruction.

Camp Modin has a record of twelve years of experience as a summer camp for Jewish boys and girls. Children attending Camp Modin come from among the finest Jewish families in the United States and Canada. The directorate of Camp Modin and the families from which the campers come are a promise that this combination of summer recreation with the building of finer Jewish character and personality can prove of real significance to the campers.
