“Kef”means fun in Hebrew, and that’s exactly the kind of summer you’ll have! Active group games, energetic song circles, messy science experiments, and creative art projects. Plus just for Kef: you pick electives (called chuggim), so you can focus on your favorite things—or try something new!

We group kids according to grade, so activities are age-appropriate. We all come together for field trips and other activities during the week.

Experience camp through the lens of Israel and Israeli culture. Not only will you enjoy our traditional camp programs, your counselors―all native Hebrew speakers―lead you on explorations of the art, food, and atmosphere of Israel, all in Hebrew.

The majority of this camp will be conducted in Hebrew, and almost all of the participants are native Hebrew speakers. This camp is best-suited to kids who already speak Hebrew fluently.
