All-Gender Living Space
Habonim Dror Camp Moshava is a safe space for children to learn and grow. We believe that a thriving community is one that acknowledges and embraces diverse identities -- age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, nationality, religion, physical ability and socioeconomic status -- explores the intersections of those identities, and encourages children to be their truest selves. Our programming seeks to appreciate the value that each camper brings to camp. Because of the individual, the community is stronger, because of the community, the individual is stronger.

At Moshava, we meet campers where they are! We house campers according to gender identity and where they will feel most comfortable living at camp. This summer, we are also excited to offer an all-gender ohel (tent) for Bogrimot (rising 10th graders) and an all-gender ohel for Madatz (rising 12th graders) who identify as gender non-conforming, non-binary, gender fluid, genderqueer and allies.

Currently, CampMinder (our registration software) does not have an option for parents and guardians to indicate if their camper identifies as transgender or gender non-conforming. There is also no place to indicate if a camper would like to be housed by gender identity (as opposed to assigned gender). In order to make inclusive housing options easily accessible to our campers, we have created the form below . When we receive your form, we will contact you to follow up. In line with our privacy policies, personal information is kept confidential.

Everyone is welcome to complete the form and no one is required to. This form is an opportunity for campers of any age to share their living needs when it comes to gender identity. While we may not be offering an all-gender option for younger age groups, we’d like to do as much as possible to accommodate and include all of our chanichimot (campers).

The approach of meeting campers where they are and housing campers according to gender identity at overnight camps, is the best practice in the camping industry today. It is also in-line with the Jewish value, shivyon erech ha'adam, respecting and valuing all people.

We are here to help! If you have any questions, concerns, ideas or would like support, please feel free to contact Yael Horowitz, Rosh Machaneh (camp director) at roshmosh2017@campmosh.org or Jen Silber, our Executive Director at 301-348-7339 or jen@campmosh.org.
