Traditionally, the Great Kinneret Sleepout is the BIG EVENT of the summer for members of our Camp Kinneret family. Campers enjoy an exciting night sleeping at camp under the stars, creating and performing skits, and sharing a traditional camp fire of songs and stories. As always, our caring staff creates a family atmosphere which allows children to feel safe, secure, and happy. Campers of all ages are invited to participate in this special overnight opportunity!
For some campers, this will be their very first time sleeping away from home or their first time sleeping outdoors. Others may have more experience with sleeping out. The Great Kinneret Sleepout has been a super successful night for lots of children over the years!
You may have some questions about the Sleepout such as: What will it be like? What should I bring? What’s for dinner? We’re glad that you asked! This special Sleepout page was designed to help answer some of the more commonly asked questions about the Sleepout. If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to call us!
- To fully enjoy all that the Sleepout has to offer, it is important that campers bring the right gear. The following is a list of supplies to send along with your camper(s).
Clearly label all of the articles that your child(ren) bring to camp so that we can help campers bring their own things home.
Please pack all of the following in a duffel bag (or large, heavy duty garbage bag), clearly marked with your child’s name and his/her counselor’s name. If your child rides on a camp bus, your bus counselor will instruct you which day to bring your equipment. If you drive your child to camp, bring their Sleepout bag on Thursday or Friday of Sleepout week. We strongly suggest leaving favorite stuffed animals and/or blankets at home – we would be very sad if they were to be lost or left behind (sending a 4th or 5th favorite is best).
- If your camper attends camp on Fridays: Please put the long pants, an extra towel and an extra bathing suit in their regular Friday backpack
- If you will be bringing your camper to camp Friday Afternoon: Please pack long pants, a towel and a bathing suit in a separate bag for easy access. (A plastic grocery bag clearly labeled will work!
*Campers in “A” groups (entering PK, TK, and kindergarten) do not participate in a second swim.
If you pick up your child at camp, please do not come early on Sleepout Friday to pick up your camper. Please come during regular pick up time, 4:00-5:00pm
If you cancel your Sleepout registration prior to the end of the
regular camp day (4:00 pm), your payment will be refunded in full.
