A summer camp in Israel is a great chance to explore fascinating sites, connect to your heritage, and learn a thing or two.
Jewish summer camps where always a great way for kids and teens to develop their Jewish identity and give them great values such as community, Zionism and connection to Israel. Jewish camps effect teens in that way even more than the formal Jewish education at schools and synagogues.
Now take this amazing effect camps had on teens and put it in an environment of a camp in Israel. Participating in an international summer camp in Israel is a great way for you to get to know Israel, experience the country and the people, enjoy the amazing advantages it has to offer, and connect to your Jewish traditions and heritage.
Special Place for Jews
Israel is the best place for someone to connect to their Jewish traditions and roots. You don’t have to visit the Western Wall to understand that Israel is special for Jews. As the only country in the world speaking Hebrew, you will immediately feel a special bond and connection to the place. Whether you come for a vacation, a semester, a business trip, or the unique experience our summer camp offers, you can be certain that the atmosphere in Israel will grasp you.
Old and new traditions at BIG IDEA’s camp
As we mentioned, one of the best places to understand the Jewish atmosphere is in a Jewish summer camp. BIG IDEA’s international summer camp in Israel fosters an open and welcoming environment, greatly emphasizing the special Jewish nature. When you meet other Jewish teens from all over the world, you get to experience familiar traditions and discover some new ones.
Before sundown on Friday afternoon, BIG IDEA’s camp offers a unique atmosphere of new songs and old prayers. The camp’s synagogue caters for those with more orthodox views and requirements. In addition, some of our counselors are religious, and will be more than happy to answer any question and offer explanations for any topic. As you can see, we want to help our campers connect to their roots and offer a variety of ways to do so. Even though we speak English at our camps, you will probably learn a bit of Hebrew as well.
Having Fun in Israel
We know that not everyone connect to their tradition through ceremonies. So what does Israel have to offer except from prayers and synagogues? Surprisingly, despite being the small country that it is, Israel offers a variety of breathtaking views, exciting attractions, an abundance of recreational activities, and natural resources. At BIG IDEA camp you can also take teen trips in Israel to the most attractive locations. Between the sessions of camp, you can explore the Galilee, go on white water rafting at the Jordan river and even visit the vibrant cities.
Making new Jewish friends from around the world
We saved this to the last paragraph because we think that making new friendships, is the most important value you can get when you go to camp. When traveling to Israel to participate in an international summer camp in Israel, you get to meet other Jewish teens and kids from Jewish communities around the world and instantly, you become best friends with them. Summer camp friendships are the ones who would last for a long time. When you share a bunk with friends from Israel, you know you’ll have someone to visit on your next trip to Israel.
