Seven North American Summer Camps

Machanot Kayitz — מחנות קיץ

Habonim Dror machanot (summer camps) provide children ages 8 – 17 with a unique camping experience. Based on the model of a kibbutz, each machaneh (camp) creates a close-knit community based on Jewish ideals of collective responsibility, respect, equality and friendship. A wealth of activities, programs and scouting events are offered at each machaneh: from arts and crafts to Hebrew songs and rikud (Israeli dancing); a full sports program to nature study. Campers will grow physically, emotionally and intellectually in a creative, open and caring environment. Habonim Dror has been providing a machaneh experience since 1932.
