Warm up your Winter with Bnei Akiva, at our awesome Machanot (camps) for Years 6-12. All Bnei Akiva camps are run by our amazing volunteer Madrichim, who go through our training programmes to ensure they are the most talented, responsible, capable and committed leaders for your children.

Provisional dates: 21st-28th December 2023



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.


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


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 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. Don’t miss out on a fantastic Bnei Akiva milestone!


This is a very special machane 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.
