Summer Camp Breakdown

During our Summer camps, Netzer South Africa we have five age groups during our Summer camps;

Tipot ‘Raindrops’ ages 7 – 9

Geshem ‘Rain’ ages 10 – 11

Sheleg ‘Snow’ ages 12 – 13

Shemesh ‘Sun’ ages 14 – 15

Keshet ‘Rainbow’ ages 16 – 18

Geshem, Sheleg, Shemesh and Keshet stay the full two weeks on camp.

As the oldest age group, Keshet has the option of staying an additional few days after camp with the madrichim during Rear-Guard. This is an opportunity as the oldest age group and future leaders of the movement to participate in camp feedback; discuss the future of Netzer and to bond with the current madrichim and their future peers. This is not only vital for the sustainability of Netzer but is also loads of fun! There are no extra costs involved.

Tipot, our youngest age group stay for only three days and is only available to children residing in Cape Town.

Camp is an excellent opportunity to experience Netzer In full swing- and be immersed in Jewish education, culture, friends and fun! As well as teaching the values of Progressive Judaism, Reform Zionism, Tikkun Olam and Israel, Netzer provides a way to actively participate in them. Netzer chanichim benefit from learning through a diverse range of activities.

Join us for the highlight of the Netzer year, two weeks of fun-packed adventure surrounded by all your friends and cared for by inspirational, highly trained leaders. It is an event not be missed!

We look forward every year to having every regular and new child on our lovely campsite enjoying, learning, growing and pioneering their Jewish identities in our wonderfully-small Reform community!

Tipot Camp – Grades 1 – 3 (during the 2018 school year)
Once again we will be offering a mini-machaneh for our youngest age group, Tipot. Unfortunately, this is only for Western Cape families or families that will have at least one parent in Cape Town over the duration of their stay. This year, they will be with us from 21 – 23 December. Channichim have a great opportunity to partake in the fun for 3 days.

Keshet – Grades 10 – 12 (during the 2018 school year)
Our oldest age group has the additional option of staying on with us for rear-guard. Please note that we are hoping to book flights as early on the morning of the 31st as possible, so everyone can get back to their cities in time for New Years’ – we are working with a very small time frame this year!
