Machane Miami Day Camp, located in North Miami Beach, wrapped up its fourth successful summer on August 5. Directed by Chaim and Yael Homnick, Machane Miami has grown into a South Florida powerhouse in the day camp market while also expanding to attract and accommodate an international clientele.
Featuring boys, girls, and preschool divisions, Machane Miami serves 500 campers each summer from nearly every South Florida community and nearly every South Florida yeshiva. Machane Miami also serves nearly 80 campers from New York and 50 more from Toronto, Montreal, Brazil, and Belgium.
“We have a professional, polished product with all of the amenities of a top-notch camp, but we keep the prices affordable for parents,” says Homnick. Local families and families from out-of-town enjoy knowing that their children can attend a thoroughly enjoyable camp with an authentic Jewish atmosphere and door-to-door busing from Collins Avenue.
The camp is based out of Toras Emes Academy of Miami so it enjoys superb grounds and the camp sets up a water park, game room and gymnasium room on campus each summer. Campers from across South Florida enjoy a dynamic summer schedule that includes weekly trips, entertainment, and workshops such as karate for boys and art, gymnastics, and dance for the girls and preschool divisions.Shelley Benveniste
