  • Rabbi Moses has found the perfect balance of free-range supervision in a warm, caring, and safe environment. The boys are able to explore and experiment at their own pace, forming strong friendships and appreciating Hashem's amazing world.

  • Uru Adventure camp was an incredible experience for our son - the well thought out programming combined with Rabbi Moses and his unique approach towards education made every moment remarkable. It fostered a love of nature and learning that was priceless.

  • Our son benefited very much from the Uru Sunday adventures as well as the summer camp! Rabbi Moses and his staff truly succeeded in creating a program that encourages each child to push themselves thereby instilling a real sense of accomplishment and self esteem.

  • As a parent and educator I really appreciate the way Rabbi Moses creates an interactive hands-on learning experience through nature. His program is a great way to teach important life lessons of responsibility and teamwork in a fun camp environment. It is especially good for boys who may not be into competitive sports, but enjoy being active in other ways. My boys learned so much and enjoyed every moment. The camp is well organized with themes that integrate, Torah and Halacha through experiencing them first hand in nature, a great way to really understand Halacha.

  • Camp URU was by far the best camp my son has attended. He was eager and excited every morning to go to URU. This camp is so amazing on so many levels – teaching children important skills, self confidence and resilience all while enjoying the wonder and beauty of nature!

What we do

We understand the importance of making time for activities that enrich our lives. But sometimes the very activities that we schedule become just another part of the bustle of life. Uru Adventure aims to give children the chance to get guided physical activity in an environment that is non-competitive and nurtures their natural development. We work on building life skills and helping children center themselves through activities and exploration in nature. We accomplish this through our Sunday programs as well as our summer camp.

 

What People are saying

Who we are

Uru Adventure Philosophy

“The plants of the field had not appeared on earth and all the grasses of the field hadn’t sprouted forth, for the Almighty had not yet brought rain and there was no man to work the ground” (Bereshis 2:5)

The Almighty withheld the rain that would reveal the splendor and majesty of creation because there were not yet humans to recognize and appreciate the splendor. One of the deepest-seated anchors of the human mind is an awareness and recognition of the natural world. It is the field upon which our developed minds were first able to apply language and logic. We have come a long way in developing technology and ever expanding our capabilities through curiosity and intellectual exploration. However, this human tradition was and is still based on a deep and personal connection to the natural world. As life speeds up and we encounter more layers that cover our interactions with nature, it is increasingly important to put effort into the fostering our relationship with nature. In nature, our minds and bodies become aware and awakened to the complexity, beauty, and divine latent in the world. We feel centered and able to confront challenges after connecting to the natural world around us.

Young children’s minds are much more malleable and able to synchronize with natural rhythms. As children explore and interact in natural settings, many of the unnatural anxiety and feelings of unsettledness begin melting. Children must be encouraged to grow and develop with the technology of our times, but must also not lose the chance to become aware of the knowledge of nature upon which out ancestors built technology. The challenge and opportunity we have with children is to help them through knowledge, fun, guidance and love to gain awareness of their natural heritage. We must help children’s minds have the chance to be imprinted by nature while they are most capable of creating the neural pathways that will keep the experiences for life.

This challenge and necessity inspires the vision of Uru Adventure. Our goal is to empower the unbridled spirits of children with the transcendent power of nature awareness.
