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.
Cookout Day: At the Kiufit camp (serving the secular sector), grades 1-3 had a cookout day. In the course of the day they prepared dough, and baked pita bread on an open Bedouin oven. They all had a great time.
A Day of Fun at the Pool: At the Afikef camp (serving the religious sector), the girls went out for a fun day at a moshav located outside of Kassam range.
