What better way to develop your child’s relationship to and understanding of Israel than to have actual Israeli madrichim (counselors) leading part of the programming each day at camp? Through games and activities focusing on Israeli culture, Israeli songs and dances, and even Israel Day, these shlichim will have a tremendous impact on your camper’s experience.
Our Tarboot (Israeli culture) specialist is Amit Paz.
Amitz lives with her parents and four siblings in Atlit which is a coastal town south of Haifa. Amit just finished her IDF service where she served in a classified unit for two years. Amit loves to swim at the beach and hangout with her friends. In her spare time she listens to music, sings and loves to watch Friends. Amit is looking forward to bringing her love for Israel to our campers. Fun Fact: Amit’s sister Maayan was a shlicha at Camp JCC in 2010.
Our Rikud (Israeli dance) specialist is Adva Cohen.
Adva lives in Pardes Hanna near Caesarea with her mother and two brothers. Adva served for two years in the IDF as a field observer on the Egyptian border as part of the Intelligence department. Adva loves camping, going to the beach and of course dancing. In her spare time she listens to music, and loves to watch Grey’s Anatomy and The Big Bang Theory. Adva is looking forward to teaching campers new things about Israel.
