Israel @ Camp
Camp is a natural environment for young people to explore their relationship with Israel and Israelis. Supporting Israel at camp and other experiential settings has always been a priority of The iCenter. Over the past decade, The iCenter has worked with over 25,000 campers in more than 50 summer camps across North America.
This immersive experience provides great opportunities to infuse Israel into the fabric of everyday life, and to sustain a meaningful culture of Israel education in the camp and the camp community that will extend beyond the summer.
The iCenter’s team of consultants can assist camps in thinking about how to infuse Israel throughout, as well as help guide programming staff with the nuances of specific educational approaches and programs.
From Hebrew signage and artwork to Israeli games, explore interactive materials designed for camp to enhance and transform your environment and programs.
Empowering counselors and working jointly alongside the Jewish Agency with Israeli shlichim, to develop and deepen relationships. The focus is on creating a team approach to Israel education.
PARTNER WITH US!
We were able to use Israel @ Camp as a motivator and push toward increasing the use of Hebrew at camp. A small example is that we were finally able to add ‘tzevet’ to the back of our staff shirts. It means a lot to our shlichim to have ‘staff’ written in both English and Hebrew.
We aspire to include Israel in the avira of camp. This year, our chanichim shared their stories about and connections to Israel. This included the stories of chanichim who feel connected to the land, but have never been there in person. It was beautiful to see!
