Camp Nai Nai Happy Hour

Imagine a place where adults really let go, laugh uncontrollably, sing during meals, and stay up late sharing secrets. Where the only thing to binge on is Arts and Crafts and the only liquid courage is the sweat earned from color wars or the camp dance. Sounds too good to be true? It's not! Come learn more about Camp Nai Nai Nai, the first ever Jewish Summer Camp that’s just for grown-ups, at Moishe House DC for a Happy Hour. Think of it as a preview for summer camp with smores, drinks, and good times with new friends. RSVP and join us!
