Kimama for me is like Fantasy Island. Every summer, I go back to my childhood and with the help of those I meet there, I succeed in fulfilling my wishes and laughing out loud. Kimama allows me to maintain contact with the people I love, even during the year, when I join Kimama’s winter activities.

I first heard of Kimama in 2010 after I made Aliyah. I made Aliyah in 2009 alone and without my family and when I heard about the camp I thought what a great way to meet people. So after applying and being accepted as a kimama counselor I found myself in June couple of years ago on a bus on my way to Michmoret. When I got there (like most campers that come to Kimama) I was scared, I didn’t know anyone and everything was new to me.
After only a few days at Kimama I felt I had found home, id made new friends who became like family. The campers became like younger brothers and sisters and the counselors and heads of camp have become lifelong friends.
5 years later I am still loving living in Israel, my Hebrew improved over my summer at Kimama and today I’m still an un separated part of Kimamas family, working at the office as costumer manager.
Kimama is amazing for all ages!

As a counselor at Kimama, I think the experience I’ll remember longest is the camps’ Kaballat Shabbat. That’s certainly a special and emotional moment. The camp becomes one big family who watches the ceremony together, eats together the family-like Friday night dinner, and of course sings and dances together in the dining room after the meal.

Kimama is like my second home. At Kimama I can just be myself. I can’t describe how much I love that place, the friends, everything. There isn’t a moment at Kimama when I’m bored, nor or enjoying myself, or not learning something. The counselors keep us busy all the time and teach us new stuff about different things, and especially about ourselves. You could say I’m addicted to the experience! I hope that in another 3 years, when I’m old enough, I can become a counselor at Kimama – because there’s nothing I want more than that!
