JUF's Kefiada *
JUF's English-immersion, American-style day camp in Kiryat Gat-Lachish-Shafir, Israel. Kefiada campers are 4th-6th graders and the counselors are college students from Chicago or go to school in Illinois. Kefiada serves as a bridge over the summer for Israeli students to retain the English that they have learned during the school year and expand on it. This is a great way for college students to get back to Israel, really become a part of Israeli life, and help Israelis in a meaningful way. There is no program cost, plus free room and board and $1,200 flight stipends for all counselors. The camp runs from late June to late July. Summer 2019 dates are June 20-July22.
