ENTERING KINDERGARTEN & GRADE 1
Machaneh b’Ivrit combines all the fun of Camp JCC while exposing campers to conversational Hebrew, by listening and speaking with counselors and friends.
Campers play, laugh, sing, swim, run and create in the warmth of a close-knit camp group. Campers come home each day proud of their new language skills – along with new friendships, great camp memories and a love of Hebrew.
From the moment camp begins, all aspects of the camp day, are conducted in Hebrew. Campers learn Hebrew by doing activities they already enjoy. Through art projects, campers discover Hebrew words for shapes and colors. Music and games expose campers to other Hebrew terms and phrases, which are continually reviewed and reinforced during the 7 weeks of camp.
Our counselors come from Israel and the United States. They have fluency in Hebrew as well as a strong understanding of child development.
Previous knowledge of Hebrew is not required.
