DATES 2022: 22nd-29th December
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.
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
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.
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
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!
H-COURSE – YEAR 12
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.
Every summer Bnei Akiva is the place to be as we run our fantastic Machanot (camps) for Years 3-10. 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.
PROVISIONAL DATES 2023 - 1st-14th AUGUST
Location: London Bayit, NW11
Your first two-week residential experience is sure to be one to remember with awesome tochniot and ruach led by our fantasatic Madrichim.
You will learn some vital outdoor survival skills, sleeping under canvas and enjoying some epic outdoor adventures! You’ll bond as a shevet, form special friendships to last a lifetime, and learn about inspirational characters from Tanach.
Gimmel will be packing their bags for two weeks of fun and friends! We can’t wait for an amazing experience enjoying Bnei Akiva ruach on your final summer residential before Israel Machane!
On Gimmel you’ll bond as the newly formed Shevet Hashachar, finding a role for your shevet in the world and making lifelong connections.
Dates: 27th July – 4th August
BMP (Beit Midrash Programme) is our year 13 programme that prepares you for your next stage of life, be that yeshiva, midrasha, kivun or university! You’ll make lifelong friendships with the poeple you’ll be spending the next year of your life with as well as those going to other universities/institutions that you want to stay connected to! The amazing learning opportunities on the programme will equip you with the tools you need to continue exploring jewish thought and identity by yourself, after high school. Through some thought-provoking activities we will explore as a shevet (year group) what we want out of the next years of our lives and the next stage of our bnei akiva journeys – including preparation for being senior madrichim next summer. You’ll get plenty of hadracha time as well! We will be sharing a site with all the other Bnei Akiva machanot this summer and putting our Torah learning into action making tochniot, shiurim and a bunch of other activities for the chanichim on site. At Bnei Akiva we believe our learning should be ‘l’lamed’ – in order to teach – and you’ll definately see that ideal in action over BMP. You even have the opportunity to stay on camp after BMP and take up a tafkid if you want! The fun does not stop there – every afternoon you’ll get some fun activities to bond as a shevet – you deserve it after exams! From watersports to hiking to your classic Bnei Akiva tochniot. Join Bnei Akiva for a week you won’t forget – not as chanichim or madrichim but as BMP talmidim! Looking forward to seeing you this summer!
