Thank you, family hosts!
Every summer for more than 15 years Camp Chaverim, the only Jewish Day Camp on the Virginia Peninsula welcomes 2 Israelis from the Jewish Agency for Israel. These young adults have just completed their Israel Defense Forces service and are here for the summer as counselors (Shlichim) to join our camp staff. They bring a wealth of knowledge and training to Camp Chaverim. The goal of this program is to have these counselors represent their country and educate campers about Israeli culture.
If you would like the opportunity to strengthen your connection to Israel, make new friends, and do a wonderful mitzvah at the same time (as either a back-up host this summer or for the future) please contact Jennifer Meyers, Director of Jewish Programming.The host families have loved being able to learn a bit about Israel also and the counselors enjoy experiencing American culture. It truly is a rewarding and enjoyable experience for all involved.
We are fortunate to have this part of our program subsidized by the generosity of The Belle S. Frank Endowment Fund of the United Jewish Community of the Virginia Peninsula and we are grateful to community members like you who take the time to bring a little bit of Israel into your homes.
