GIMMEL – YEAR 10

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

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.
