Whether you love hiking through large stands of ponderosa pines or appreciate historic places, Prescott offers things to do and places to see for everyone. Mild seasons make it an appealing destination year-round. A mile-high city, Prescott is nestled in the Ponderosa Pines of Prescott National Forest. Your home for the Labor Day weekend will be a camp next to Prescott National Forest. This year's Jewish Outdoor Escape will be held at a camp outside of Prescott and at the edge of Prescott National Forest. From this venue we will be leading numerous activities. Possible activities include hiking, kayaking, biking, paddling, nature walks, arts & crafts, dancing, workshops, swimming, campfires, field games, photography, swimming, and cultural events. Included this year will be the option of doing a day trip to either the Grand Canyon or Sedona. 

What is the Jewish Outdoor Escape?
The Mosaic's Jewish Outdoor Escape is held every year during an extended Labor Day Weekend. It gives Jewish outdoor enthusiasts from all over the world the opportunity to spend time with each other in a Jewish setting, and enjoy out-of-doors activities. We stay at a summer camp and the activities vary each year depending on the locale. Over 100 like-minded Jewish adventurers attend this event each year.
