WHAT WE DO
Shnat Netzer is a 10 month gap year program in Israel for Post Matric Netzernicks. It is an ideal program for anyone wishing to experience Israel from a Progressive perspective. Shnatties get the opportunity to experience everything Israel has to offer. Below is some more detailed information about the structure of the program.
Alternating between the dry highveld of Gauteng and the humid climates of Kwa-Zulu Natal, Netzer South Africa hosts an amazing Winter Machaneh in the June/July holidays.
Netzer South Africa Summer Machaneh is our biggest and best event. Every year, Netzernicks from all over Southern Africa travel down to Back 2 Basics Adventure Campsite in Grabouw, 65km south-east of Cape Town, for the best 2 weeks of their lives. Grabouw is the commercial centre for the Elgin Valley, the largest single export fruit producing area in Southern Africa.
Netzer South Africa has branches in Gauteng, Durban and Cape Town, where we engage Channichim from Grade 1 – 12 in different activities throughout the year.
