The Piven Workshop: What Makes a Great Leader?

Using the art and methods of Israeli popular artist Hanoch Piven, these activities encourage campers to explore Israel's history, their own surroundings and identity, and individuals' connections to Israel. This activity consists of several modules which can be used on a mix-and-match basis. Elements can be used as quick conversation-starters or in-between activities; alternately, several components can fill an hour, half a day, or a week of activity blocks.

Take Israel to the Moon

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Israel going to the moon?

This is a great program whether you have a rocketry program or not.
