Beber’s Overnight Camping Philosophy

We believe that outdoor living skills and getting back to nature are important parts of the Beber Camp experience. All Beber campers participate in age appropriate overnights and camping trips.

On the Makor overnight camping trip program, your child will:

  • Hike through some of Beber Camp’s nature trails
  • Learn beginner camping and wildlife skills in a supportive small group environment
  • Challenge themselves in a safe environment and try something outside their comfort zone
  • Make lasting memories with their closest camp friends

What your camper can expect

All you need is a spirit of adventure!

When it comes to nature, you’re in for a real treat. You will see natural areas teeming with wildlife. You’ll encounter spectacular views, sunrises, sunsets, and amazing starry skies as you go to sleep for that one night in a tent.

Makor Campers HikingOn what may be your first camping trip, you’ll find your way to fun and adventure by hiking and tent camping. You will learn valuable camping and wildlife skills. You’ll be equipped with knowledge about proper camping techniques and how to practice “leave no trace” principles. Learning by experience is the best way to master a new skill; this trip will allow you new ways to enjoy and care about the planet we live on.

Beber campers agree that camping trips are a blast. They tell us time and time again that it is during these trips that cabin mates really come together as a team. You will be working together to build campsites, pitch tents, cook meals, and hike that last mile to a beautiful view. All this teamwork builds lasting friendships and memories. Trips away from camp aren’t always easy. Sometimes it rains or we forget to bring something we need, yet through it all we know that as a team we can meet any challenges that come our way. You will succeed and be proud of what you accomplished.
