OUR CAMPERS

"I suddenly found out I love things I never thought I would, such as app development. The amazing thing is that it doesnโ€™t feel like school at all, it feels like you are just hanging with your best friendsโ€

"As a very close relative to two girls (cousins) who participated in this camp....I must say that practically "living" in face book following them - was a fantastic experience. In all the pictures and video clips, the kids looked absolutely happy. Thank you members of the staff for taking such good care of the kids, and enriching their minds. This has been "my" second camp. I am looking forwards for the third. As funny as it may sound, I too miss the camp already. THANK YOU!"

The counselors lead the workshops during the day and guide the kids personally in their social age groups. We maintain a close ratio of one staff member for every five campers, so every camper could get a personal attention and a special experience.

The main language at camp is English. With younger campers, we repeat everything in Hebrew as well. We have campers and counselors from all around the world so you should always be able to find someone who can help you to translate if needed.

BIG IDEA Camp operates under a strict Green-Pass certification by the ministries of health and education.
