Sports and Recreation

recreation.JPG“A healthy body makes for a healthy mind”. Based on this premise we include two hours of recreational time in our daily schedule. We have available for our students a number of recreational outlets both within and outside of our building. At Bais Menachem our students have a ping-pong table and a pool table, a variety of musical instruments, and an open computer room that are open to our studnets during their free time.

At the local JCC, our students have access to a state-of-the-art fitness center, basketball court, swimming pool, game room, and even a bowling alley.

On a long Sunday afternoon we often take a ride out to Harvey's Lake for an afternoon of swimming and boating or to Ricketts Glen State Park for an afternoon of hiking and swimming under cascading waterfalls. These activities serve as healthy outlets to further encourage our students' efforts at self improvement , as well as being a well deserved rest for the mind.
