This unique program for teens 14 – 15 years deepens the camp experience for our older campers. Teen campers are taught the value of tikkun olam (social action) through specialized programming and community service opportunities, gaining valuable leadership skills, while also participating in typical camp activities such as swimming, ropes course, arts and crafts and so much more! Teens Campers sleep in our special Teen Center with their peers and trained counselors.
Kibbutz Explorations is a unique and exciting 12-day summer session for campers age 12-15, designed for campers looking for a unique and exciting summer program that will allow them to learn new skills in a specific area while still surrounded by all the friends and fun of camp! Campers choose a core program prior to the start of the session, and spend the majority of their time learning and growing within these tracks. Core programs include Farm-to-Table Cooking, Outdoor Adventure, Performing Arts, Fine Arts, and Technology and Film making, all taught by experienced program specialists. Campers also participate in all of our amazing camp activities such as swimming, ropes course, and sports, as well as camp-wide evening programs and special activities. Explorations campers will sleep in cabins with other campers the same age and gender, as well as two or three camp counselors, and they will participate in their Core activities with a mixed-age, coed group. Kibbutz Explorations operates in tandem with our 9-11 year old program during Kibbutz Session 2 only.
While CITs do not need to be Jewish to attend, we cultivate a pluralistic and multi-faith atmosphere that promotes respect among campers of all religious beliefs.
