Using the NU Campaign t-shirts, campers will learn the stories of some of Israel's greatest heroes, including David Ben Gurion, Hannah Senesh, and Golda Meir. They will have an opportunity to reflect on the importance of these well-known stories and on how these stories intersect with their own personal stories. And finally, take out the markers and bubble paint because it's time for them to create their own t-shirts!
Through the NU Campaign t-shirts, campers will learn about the important work of several Israeli social action organizations. By exploring the stories of Israeli non-profits, such as Leket Israel, Save a Child's Heart, and Jewish Hearts for Africa, campers will reflect on Israel's impact throughout the world and personally connect with some of Israel's causes.
Based off of the hit TV show 'Shark Tank,' this program allows campers to compete in front of a panel of judges for which city/place in Israel is deserving of the title: Coolest Place in Israel.
Note that this is the same program format as "Follow the Leader" and "What Would Better Look Like."
Every year on Yom Ha'atzmaut (Independence Day), the State of Israel commissions a poster to commemorate the year. While the posters touch on many important themes, the theme of peace is often present. Using the series of posters, campers will explore Israel's quest for peace, within its own borders, with the Palestinians and with its Arab neighbors. In the end, they will have the opportunity to create their own pieces of artwork.
This is an experiential program that invites participants to learn about the geography of Israel through the names of its cities. As in Native American cultures, Hebrew names have meanings. The same is true of Israel's cities. Go on a journey through the identities and histories of Israel's cities. Just don't forget your passport!
This activity provides opportunities for high-school-aged campers to delve into the reality of the military challenges facing Israel.
