Warm up your Winter with Bnei Akiva, at our awesome machanot (camps) for Years 6-12. All the Bnei Akiva camps are run by volunteers, who go through a selection process from which only the most talented, responsible, capable and committed leaders are chosen.

ALEPH - YEAR 67 - Bnei Akiva

ALEPH – YEAR 6/7

Aleph is specially designed to cater for our younger members, many of whom have never been to camp before. Our trained Madrichim aim to draw out and develop the individual talents and self-expression of each child in an atmosphere conducive to fun, learning and creativity.

MA’APILIM - YEAR 8 - Bnei Akiva

MA’APILIM – YEAR 8

Put down your books, pack your bag and come to camp! For an amazing week of fun, catching up with your friends and even making some new ones, as well as strengthening your Bnei Akiva identity – the memories will last forever.

HAROEH YEAR 9 - Bnei Akiva

HAROEH – YEAR 9

On Haroeh you will experience an action packed week learning about Israel and the people who dreamt of rebuilding our homeland. You will also see how Shevet Haroeh can start to make a difference in the world.

GIMMEL YEAR 10 - Bnei Akiva

GIMMEL – YEAR 10

Gimmel is a special machane, as the year group that has been formed over previous machanot receives its own Shevet name, which carries the year group’s idea throughout the years.

The theme of the camp is looking at being Jewish in the modern world. No doubt you’ll have strong opinions on this so Gimmel will provide the perfect forum for these discussions. We also ensure that the Shevet leaves machane with a real passion and a sense of responsibility to start a chesed project of their own in Bnei Akiva

H-COURSE - YEAR 12 - Bnei Akiva

H-COURSE – YEAR 12

This is a very special machine for our year 12 chanichim, and is a must for those who wish to become Bnei Akiva madrichim in the future. The ‘H’ stands for Hadracha (leadership), and this course will guide you through the skills that will stay with you for life, not just for machane.

The week will end with all the theory that you have learnt being put into practice. You will make a visit to a younger machane and become madrich for a day.

WORKING AT MACHANE

All of Bnei Akiva’s machanot are run by dedicated volunteers. From Technikim to Madrichim, and from Head Cooks to Roshim and Sganim; Bnei Akiva needs you to keep running our fantastic machanot.
