Each Shabbat our youth are divided into age appropriate groups designed to instill positive associations with shul and teffilah, as well as educate about the weekly Torah portion and any upcoming holidays.
Supervised free play for children 1-2 years old. This program runs for the duration of the morning service on all Shabbat & Holiday mornings. Diaper changing and snack provided.
A program for 3 years olds through Kindergarten aged students combining babysitting from the start of the morning services until 10:45am, when the group transitions into structured play, age appropriate Tefillah, and Parsha instruction. Snack provided.
Children in 1st-5th grade enjoy supervised free play and a snack until 10:30am, after which they transition into a beginners Tefillah service and engaging Parsha based competitions. The Jr. Congregation group will be brought into services to lead the main Minyan from Ein Kelokeinu onward.
Beginning after the fall holidays, Moreh Shimshon Soleman gives a special class for teens who are competing in the national bible contest. Baron Hirsch is proud to give space to this ambitious and talented group of students for this extra weekly study session.
Our 41st Season - June 22 - July 18, 2017
Since 1976, Baron Hirsch has run Camp Darom, the first, and still the only overnight camp under Orthodox auspuces in the entire South. Over the years, we have attracted campers from the Souther, Midwest, and the West Coast States. Our greatest testimonal is the large number os campers who return year after year, and even the many second generation campers who now attend.
Located in Northern Alabama, our camp offers a combination of all of the traditional and extreme fun camp activities, with a strong focus on a modern orthodox approach to Torah and an emphasis on Zionism and the State of Israel.
Camp Darom is under the direction of Rabbi Avichai Pepper, who joins with his family each summer from their home in Silver Spring, Maryland. Rabbi Pepper has over 16 years of camp administrative experience and has been with Camp Darom since 2008. Both he and his wife Alanna (born in Memphis) are veteran teachers.
