Supervision + guidance from Kol HaNearim Coordinators/Home Staff present 24/7.
Banquets, Shabbatons, kumzits, outings, and lots of other awesome Volunteer-centric experiences on tap.
Loads of chizuk, inspiration, singing, achdut, and fun. ALWAYS.
We will be the first to tell you that this program is All. For. The. Kids. (F.T.K!) Counselors eat, sleep, and breathe camp. It's not an exaggeration to say our volunteer counselors are 100% focused on giving KH Kids a summer of unrelenting love, attention, and fun.
There is an ongoing debate around who gains more from the KH experience. Homes tell us how much camp means to the kids. Counselors argue that their perspective on life and commitment to Tikkun Olam is changed even more. Who's right? Join us and see for yourself.
Travel Extension: Our optional travel extension is *only* open to this year's KH volunteer counselors. Connect with each other, visit additional Homes, and see Eretz Yisroel in an entirely new way. Beginning when camp ends, we'll mix can't-miss highlights (*Think* Kotel, Masada, Dead Sea, Bedouin Tents, Camel Rides, Machaneh Yehuda, etc.) with an amazing array of off-the-beaten-track outdoor, historical, spontaneous learning, and adventure experiences you won't get anywhere else. Private tour guides, transportation, security, and all meals/accommodations included.
