Camp Week
9:00am-2:00pm Sunday -Thursday

Kehillat Mivakshei Derech
22 Shai Agnon Street, Jerusalem

This year we will be adding a healthy cooking component to our program. Different groups will assist Sarit Cohen in preparing a healthy vegetarian snack or dessert each day. Children bring their own lunches. Everything served is Kosher.

Inside vs. Outside Time
Children in Shtilim and Anafim will have approximately one hour of lunch and free play time in a local park or outdoor space each day. Additionally, during our snack break (10am) counselors run fun games for campers to opt into and have a chance to run around outside. While we do particularly messy art projects (such as Tye-Dye & Paper Mache) outside, the rest of the time, we are inside a cool, air-conditioned space.

Each week, Anafim have a trip within Jerusalem that fits with that week’s theme. Some of our trips may include the Tisch Biblical Zoo, The Gottesman Aquarium, The Nature Museum, Bloomfield Science Museum, the YMCA, the Supreme Court of Israel and more.

Camp is in English & Hebrew, all staff is bilingual.
