The Jewish Agency, with funding from the Israel Emergency Fund of the United Jewish Communities, is taking the entire population of 8,000 children ages 6 to 17 who live in the Sderot area out of the range of attack and letting kids do what they like best. From amusement parks to nature reserves, from water parks to concerts, and from touring the country to enjoying recreation with friends, kids from Sderot are having a great summer. (More about the program's funding.)
But why not hear it from them? Come back to this blog frequently to check out blog entries from different camps thoughout the summer.
Camp Kiufit participated in traffic safety workshops that will prepare the campers for their school traffic safety squads.
At the Kfar Maimon camp in the Sdot Negev Regional Council, the boys went to the pool and the girls this time stayed behind and passed the time in handicraft workshops.
