Our Story


At the BIG IDEA summer camps we believe that we need to invest in children and teens from Israel and abroad and give them the tools to develop their technological, creative and social skills.

We do that by creating a community and a family that connects kids and teens from different countries, different languages and many different fields of interest. We also expose our teens to the success story of the Israeli high-tech industry and to the newest technologies.

Professionalism is one of our most important values! With an experienced and professional team specializing in international summer camps and very high standards, we know that each camper in BIG IDEA will have an enriching and empowering educational experience that they will never forget.

Our Vision

To foster a curious generation that loves to explore and think, to provide each and every one with the tools to fulfill his and her potential and to be a source for big ideas that generate change, with community, multiculturalism and Israeli innovation as its core values.

Skillful Staff

We select only excellent counselors! Our staff members are from Israel and many other countries around the world. The counselors lead the tech and media workshops during the day and the social age groups in the afternoon and evening. We have a great ratio of 1 staff member for every 5 campers, so we can give each and every child personal attention and a meaningful experience.

All our counselors are 18 years old or older. Our staff members are college students or graduates and alumni of tech units in the IDF that come from Israel and abroad. They have a rich experience working with kids and teens at summer camps and other educational programs. Our staff goes through a long and detailed recruitment and orientation process.

In addition to our amazing counselors, you’ll meet the unit heads, who are responsible for the educational programs, our tech team, that supervises the workshops and the computer network, the camp medic, logistics team, and the documentation team that takes photos and videos at camp everyday, so the parents can stay in touch and feel the excitement!
