Israeli Friends

About half of our campers are Israeli, and this fact gives campers from abroad a real taste of the Israeli culture. Make Israeli friends this summer – friendships that keeps growing bigger from year to year!

The camp runs in English, but will still give you a great opportunity to improve your Hebrew alongside your new Israeli friends.

There is no better place to get that Jewish summer camp atmosphere than in a summer camp in Israel. We have created an open environment based on mutual respect, where kids and teens from every sect can feel comfortable.

Something In Common

You’ll meet friends from Israel and all over the world that are just like you. Everyone coming to BIG IDEA want to do something interesting and valuable in their summer vacation. You won’t believe how much you have in common with children that grow up on the other side on the plant! Those relationships are very empowering and mind-opening, as we celebrate the differences and diversity in our camp.

Say Goodbye To Your Cellphone

Yes, you’re not mistaking – our camp is phone-free!
A big part of the BIG IDEA experience is to develop independence skills. Taking the phones away creates priceless social interactions. By removing this distraction, we allow children to truly connect with each other. Those friendship last for a lifetime!


What interest you?
You choose – music or film, robotics, programming, drones, theater or wave surfing. Upgrade your skills with more than 40 professional workshops. By the end of Israel camp you’ll create amazing projects using all that experience & knowledge you gained.

Discover Your Passions

We believe that if you can dream it, you can do it.
When they’re not being criticized and graded, children are free to express their true selves, think big, take chances – and succeed!

You can count on us that by the end of summer you’ll be inspired to continue developing your new skills and working on new projects!

There are many dance parties, pool party with BBQ dinner, LAN party with game consoles and giant screens and even an international talent show, where each camper can go on stage and perform.

You’ll be with them at the dorms, hang out with them at the pool and go with them to the workshops. Two weeks later you will find out you met really good friends from many different countries.

The camp runs in English, but will still give you a great opportunity to improve your Hebrew alongside your new Israeli friends.

Everyone already knows about the success story of the Israeli hi-tech industry. It’s time to get to know it from up close! We hold fascinating tours in the most advanced technology centers in Israel and meet up with start-up entrepreneurs that will come to camp to tell about their personal success stories and of their unique developments.
