Camp Israel

The goal of “Camp Israel” is to provide a meaningful learning experience to strengthen the relationship between campers, counselors and Israel. To achieve this goal, we created an “Israel Emersion Camp” that would allow participants to experience Israel’s history chronologically, in a hands-on way, over the course of the session.

“Camp Israel” was created to offer a holistic Israel experience that combines all the fun elements of American camping with deep engagement with Jewish values, community building and the State of Israel.
